Heya Folks. I can confirm it was a DDoS attack, and yes, the folks on my team had a rough weekend. We do our best to fight DDoSes, but this one took quite a bit more effort than normal.

/me gives up on the cage and takes Hamster Linden to schnüggel in bed.

Godlike status..What it feels like when you first get it   Godlike status..What it feels like after awhile.

I swear.... This is the dumbest ***** ever. I spent so much time and a bunch of lindens on putting together an outfit for a party that had to be rescheduled due to last night.... And now it's all been a waste. AGAIN. Sorry if I sound like a diva... but this is beyond frustrating.

looks like another round of "kids are bored" and the gates are being over flooded and we get to wait until it dies down again so LL's system and respond to legit traffic.

For the love of utter monkey balls!!!!!!!

Whoever is doing these DDos'es really needs to have their Internet taken away from them and be grounded until they are 70! 

Us Adults wants to play - leave us alone!!!

ARGH!!!!!!

typically to knock down a service like this , takes a big big botnet, a big infection of lots of machines to make a big enough ddos where it stops the traffic to the service.   I used to own a computer store,  people come in, even smart people, they would be infected, because why,  they run norton and run internet explorer,  not kidding, most people run whats out of the box until you show them there are better more secure safe means and methods.     

 

mse is great for protection, but you need avast or bitdefender or avg (avast now),  then you need to run monthly scans with malwarebytes,   need to stop using IE or what ever it's called now.  use firefox/chrome with the proper protections,  aka ublock origin.

well as long as the forums still live...

Forums have seem to be not self hosted since they moved away from VB, since they ran jive and the other and this,  they seem to be hosted at the company that owns it.  so the forums have always worked even when it hits the fan.

well you can't decide what your local private botnet (a.k.a. IoT) uses, that BS isn't even patchable in most cases
