Yes, I did take my Super Model girlfriend out and did a few 400 BP's while the site was down. Brilliant minds think alike.

BTW, can you please add on 2 extra days to my blue membership for this outage? I'm about to turn mud in a few weeks.

Arzn1ck - What the hell is a Distributed Denial of Service? Phone Post 3.0

Not a pro here, but I believe the person sets up bots to flood the server with a shitload of garbage requests, thereby overloading the server. "Packet flooding".

Can't believe I just read through all this...and no one stated pea-dough? It was literally my first thought. After piling away thousands of dollars from his concrete job, he hired his brother and friends to shit this shit down. Talk about suspects with an axe to grind. Phone Post 3.0

Kirik,

I'm sure your guys are working on blocking requests from addresses with too many hits within a certain period of time, among other techniques such as load balancing, plugging holes in config files such as .htaccess and the like, programmatic issues, etc. But, one thing that I know having led development teams for security software for various government branches is that you can never really stop denial of service attacks completely.

For example, if I know how to spoof my source address well enough by going through offshore routes and other techniques, then write the program to create queries to this site simultaneously (say 10,000,000 per min or less) with a diff source address and route each time, your systems will reach their maximum number of allowed or sustainable concurrent connections and you'll have yourself a DOS attack. That may or may not work based on the resiliency of your systems, but I can think of a jillion of those and I'm not the smartest guy in my field.

Governments know this and do as much as they can. But they use deterrence by letting would be attackers know that there will be consequences. In your case deterrence would be prosecution. So, if you can find the source then report it to authorities. They'll tell you what to do next.

My 2 cents... Phone Post 3.0
