Hi guys;

Quick update here - we have been under attack basically without ceasing since I first posted. I just spoke with Ethproxy and they're going to kick up the bandwidth again to see if they can smooth these issues out - and I sent them the link to this thread in case it helps them at all. I'll let you know when it's installed and we can see if it helps.

Totally appreciate everyone's feedback and patience!

Best,

Beleaguered and besieged Amie

PS - if you send me your IP addresses (you can check at http://whatsmyip.com or similar) I can get you whitelisted for the site. Obviously not the 'suspects', but anyone else smile

They must have fixed something because I'm able to access the site from my Chrome book now (I couldn't find a user agent spoofer for it).

Apparently you are the fourth on "the list".

Here is the latest:

The upgrade is in place and the Linux users reporting issues in the forum will now see that issue resolved. This was due to an extremely large amount of attack IP's sharing the 'X11' user-agent or Konqueror.

Glad to hear it is working already! And as always, I very much appreciate your help with this issue.

I've been speaking with several people over the last couple of days (not including the Mounties, as consensus is they don't check into these things at all frown ) and I'm looking at some options regarding moving us away from our current ISP and onto a more protected platform. Any advice is appreciated! We are trying to understand if 'cloud computing' would protect against this sort of attack. We are currently on a dedicated server and our ISP threw their hands up when we contacted them about the problem and said the only thing they could do was to take the box dark for a day and hope the problem went away. This seemed more like an Amie approach than a security-minded approach, but I'm not very technically-minded, so . . .

The site is working for me now without agent spoofing. Axiom seems like an unlikely DDOS target. Unless you have some enemy with means it seems more likely that Axiom was a target by mistaken identity.

Thanks for your update, Neil. We tried switching IPs during the attack to the IP we run our backup server on, but the attack followed the domain name rather than the IP.

You're ALWAYS suspect.

Thanks for the updates, Amie. I'm too dumb to understand most of it, but still.... smile

It's an unlikely target, but if they're hitting the domain, it's certainly a targeted attack. Having multiple, distributed servers (ie, the could) would possibly help, but I'm sure Chris has more info on this than me.
