 Constant DoS
#
This announcement is regarding the recent bursts of downtime we keep having. It's ranged anywhere from 5 minutes to a 20 minutes over the past few days or so.

What is DoS?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial_of_service

QUOTE
In computer security, a denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Typically the targets are high-profile web servers, and the attack attempts to make the hosted web pages unavailable on the Internet. It is a computer crime that violates the Internet proper use policy as indicated by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB).

DoS attacks have two general forms:

    * Force the victim computer(s) to reset or consume its resources such that it can no longer provide its intended service.
    * Obstruct the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

Not all service outages, even those that result from malicious activity, are necessarily denial-of-service attacks. Other types of attack may include a denial of service as a component, but the denial of service may be part of a larger attack.


This is what is causing the downtime. There are some site(s) which I believe are hosted that are getting attacked and causing downtime for everything.

Please remember that DoS is not dangerous, it is not hacking and doesn't cause data loss. What it DOES do is, it doesn't allow me to get the services to you because its gets clogged/flooded with bogus requests.

I apologize about this, however I am doing all I can to track who exactly is doing it, why, and what can be done to stop it.

Thank you for your patience.

You just aren't on your forum at the time I guess, when this happens, every site has some difficulties, such as slow loading or downtimes, or so I would think.

I tightened some settings. Please let me know if anyone has trouble with "forbidden" error messages. I will be emailed anyway if someone does, but just a heads up.

This issue should be solved.

Jcink, come back to IRC!

In pertinent news, sorry about the attacks. It's not something I normally do, but recently Hamlin has been doing some odd things (finding his way around channel bans on IRC, ignoring oper warnings, etc.), so I will go far enough to say that he might be causing some trouble here.

It seems like it'd be relatively easy to track down the sites that are under attack, and the attacker's IP(s), just by some quick log file analysis. But I'm not there, so I really have no idea what your setup looks like.
