Site Attacked (26 MAR 2015)

Recommended Posts

Last night, the site was being attacked by multiple IPs and this caused a major slowdown in response to our normal traffic.  We've identified the IPs and have blocked them outright from accessing our sites (the blogs were the target) and have escalated the matter to the abuse offices of the owners of those IPs.


Thankfully, as we've moved the entirety of Ad Astra to a protective Content Delivery Network (CDN) the impact wasn't as bad as it was in the past.  In case you saw any site weirdness going on last night, this was the reason why.  We have it resolved (until the next attack).
