  • What has been going on mit der phorum?
     OP - November 29, 2014, 04:15 AM

    The site has been up and down like a yo-yo, including "ZOMFG account suspended" notices and endless loading stuffz, and weird messages from CloudFlare.

    Haz you been invaded by aliens? Kthnx. Tongue

    major DDOS started around 4pm GMT on Friday.

    I was working on trying to mitigate it for over 9 hours yesterday. Ended up having to sign up with cloudflare. The attack is still ongong btw. But we're managing it now. Smiley

    They end up annoying a few people, that's about it, really.

    Think of the kind of person who needs to annoy faceless strangers on the internet to feel good about his own pathetic life. That is the really funny/tragic thing.

    Yes, is cemb more at risk because of its principles?

    It is often done by computers infected with malware which can do DDoS which are then controlled from other compromised computers which are controlled by access through the Tor network.

    So basically it is just a fact of online life these days if you have real estate there finmad

    Huh. Richard Dawkins also complained about his site being taken down by a DDOS attack. Lol I was wondering why when I tried to load the page I was getting a "Checking for DDOS" error. Thought it was one of the new chrome extensions I downloaded, so I removed them.

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for I have a sonic screwdriver, a tricorder, and a Type 2 phaser.

    Simplest way to understand, it's basically traffic that flood the site and it goes down because of the amount of packets being sent.

    Bad news is:
    You cannot make people like, love, understand, validate,
    accept, or be nice to you. You can't control them either.
    Good news is:
    It doesn't matter.
