Hi guys
I have no idea what it takes to repel a DDos attack but I'm guessing it isn't easy

I would just like to thank all those involved for their dedication and hard work in trying to keep ATS up and running for us lesser mortals.

Thank you to all involved from my heart

You guys are awesome

Cody

Distributed Denial Of Service

Basically you ask the servers to do so much that they collapse under the load

Something like this

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks vary from regular denial of service (DoS) attacks due mainly to the extra “D,” which stands for “distributed.” Typically, a DDoS attack is launched from many machines which are generally PC’s that have been infected with a virus or trojan allowing them to be controlled by a “bot herder,” who gathers the infected machines into a single collective. An attacker can then issue commands to the collective, transparently ordering the machines to attack a specific target. The following diagram helps illustrate this concept:

Is there DDoS attack still ongoing? I couldn't reach the site 5 min ago. Who would DDoS ATS? This isn't just some script kiddie. This would be hard for Anonymous too.

I seem to come the conclusion that, for unknown reasons, the government is responsible for this attack on this website. Maybe somebody says something that didn't sit well with them. Or it could be some annoying kids who are sad because they got banned for being dicks.I preferred the government because the story is interesting that way.

Eta: does anybody really think that a bunch of kids could muster the manpower to bring down a site that sees 2000 of visitors a day or more. You would think that the servers could handle quite a lot. How did kiddies find enough other kiddies to keep up a constant attack?

I had this forum: abovetopsecret-backup.tk... running last night, although I will be removing the branding shortly and putting it away in the vault should we ever need to use it again.

I am here to take the credit! I was the hero of the event!

Actually I was curled up in a fetal ball, sobbing until a few good hearted ATSers found me and talked me back down from the emotional ledge. But, hey, revisionist history... it's gotta start somewhere. Right?

So... as I was saying... I was the hero of the event....
