I've updated the wiki to a newer, much nicer looking version. If you
have any errors with the website, please let me know.
- We were subjected to a DoS attack (Denial of Service). Such attacks have been used to take down
Bank servers and even cause city blackouts. They are sophisticated assaults that typically involve
80 or more computers set to execute a request on the server simultaneously, and in doing so,
prevent normal function.
At this point we cant given an estimate when it will be back up. Could be tomorrow if the logs
help us track down how its being done. The webhost tech support is being no help and we are
considering changing hosts.
Usually to make a DDoS attack successful, people are using at least 80 PCs with internet
connections. Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the IAB's Internet proper use
policy. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations.
