Service Disruptions

Hi all,

Just so everyone is aware, the site is experiencing multiple DDoS attacks. Stay with us for updates.

Was wondering why it took 7 refreshes to get on.

Do you know who/what caused it?

@FOXYCallum1#5538 Just some angry scammers most likely, have been dealing with this for a bit now.

Just as I suspected. They should just get real jobs.

@thunder#5539 Idiots, at least its fixed now.

@FOXYCallum1#5544 Still going on it appears…

@FreddieProgrammer#5548 Yeah, just struggled to get connected. If we could DDoS them back that would be cool.

@FOXYCallum1#5550 It’s a DDoS, meaning the individual isn’t the one actually attacking the server, it’s distributed.


Any updates?

@FreddieProgrammer#5553 Still getting DDoSd, just gonna have to put up with it.

@thunder#5554 Thunder, I thought cloudflare protects from this.

@Jnteamed#5563 They are not ddosing the site through CloudFlare. Plus CloudFlare free doesn’t stop Layer 7 DDoS attacks.

Crap, India found out about LOIC.

@FuelDaFlame#5570 It was actually WordPress Pingbacks. Cloudflare can block LOIC.

It was a joke. LOIC is practically useless nowadays.

@FuelDaFlame#5694 Considering the vast amount of online stressers, yeah.

Just google “online stressers” and there are About 91,500 results (0.25 seconds)

And there is at least 50 of them that are real.

@Jnteamed#5704 Server botnets are better than most stressers.
