    Our server just had a blip (you may have noticed :Doh:)


    We have rebooted the server and the site appears to be zipping along now.

    HOWEVER...

    We have got an engineer attending to our server this afternoon so it is likely that he weill do a full power cycle restart of the server. If he does the site will disappear again for about 5 minutes.

    Sorry about that but hey, ho, these things happen :ROFLMAO:

    Denial of Service

    Sorry Funsters.. Our server is literally under attack. Every couple of hours we are getting massive network traffic hits which cripples us. When this happens we have absolutely no admin access so we are a bit helpless. We may well lose the site a few more times whilst we figure out how to stop the attacks.

    Thanks for your patience

    These graphics show the network traffic we are receiving. Where our normal traffic results in a load of around 50K, we took 2 hits of over 6MB a second yesterday, and one of 8mbs this morning:Eeek: Why we should be attacked like this is beyond me, I am still not sure what is really going on and I have no idea what people gain from this crap:Angry:

    Is there any way of knowing where these hits are coming from Jim, or indeed any way of blocking them ? :Angry:

    Hopefully it will be easy to identify a pattern and put a block on further attacks. Last time I did an investigation the trails led all over the world - got the b*gg*r in the end though ::bigsmile:

    Well property ladder was really good last night. :winky:

    I thought I was sad for the ammount of time I spent on computers.
    But why would someone attack a server? :Blush:

    What is there to be gained?
    :whatthe:
    And are they aware I had a high score on Crypt Raider when they attacked?:ROFLMAO:

    Please explain someone.
