As was pointed out in a different thread, the (apparent) DDoS is not limited to Linden Lab. If they have any information, it is likely to be posted when there is actually someone there to post an

Linden Labs needs to contact a DDOS mitigation specialist, either that or find their own hacker to do the same to the loser who has too much time on his hands. 

Ultimately they need to update people on what is happening much much sooner and get these things under control.  It shouldn't be multiple times in 1 week time frame this happens. 

Most companies hire decent network engineers, develop contingency plans to minimize downtime, as well as creating partnerships with 3rd party companies who may be better suited at preventing larger scale attacks. All of which linden labs doesn't seem to be investing in... instead lets start some cool new game. *ends rant*

How do you know the Lab dosn't? They have a tradition of keeping a low profile, and btw, who cares if they announce " we hired Jimmy now a network enineer" There would be just as much Boo and Hiss in that case as is now.

A good network engineer wouldn't be enough as I stated other methods as well. I know they haven't because this would not have been an ongoing issue for almost a week now. A day sure... adapt make changes. But at this point I think its very clearly not much has changed.

Yes, it's actually more than the fourth time, but at this stage who's counting?  This time I am in the barrel, having been lucky enough to not have been affected thus far.

DDoS prevention is one thing but I wonder if what we are seeing now is the result of servers having actually being damaged by the huge influx of requests that DDoS involves?

It is becoming a worry that LL and their partners cannot seem to inoculate against these attacks.

DDoS attacks can't actually damage a server

They could potentially damage network cards... however... I'm sure the traffic is cutting off at firewalls before actually hitting the servers. It could potentially harm load balancers, or firewalls... pretty much any equipment standing in front of the servers that handle the traffic. Anything that requires computing and processing traffic definitely can consume computing power creating heat... to much heat on equipment can cause damage. However at the end of the day it is VERY unlikely to create any permanent damage. Not like LL is running commodores or something... :x

 

*EDIT*

.....

I hope.
