    Default DDoS Confirmed?

    For those wondering...
    http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/...s-being-ddosd/

    I'm not trying to bad mouth Trion or any of that crap, I'm just informing everyone. A DDoS isn't a flip of the switch then boom they're good, it's more complicated. It's not their fault. Be patient, please.

    Sincerely,

    Someone who's worked in customer service for way too long.

    No, they're not being hacked. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack

    Per Wikipedia:
    Although the means to carry out, the motives for, and targets of a DoS attack vary, it generally consists of efforts to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host connected to the Internet.

    Can't help it, but first time I saw you link this, I was thinking "This is open world PvP..."

    Looks like someone is spamming good old Fan Out?

    And yes, it is mesmerizing... I linked the page on TS after raid one day, and we were busy watching it for quite a while, someone even struggled to log off to go to bed.

    We're still in the midst of a DDoS attack, but our teams are hard at work to get you back in the game.
    What could they be working on? I mean, what could they actually do about this?

    They are re-formatting the floppy drive so the fluorocarbonator can be safely mounted on the internet bus.
    In such cases the artificial-intelligence can sometimes become unresponsive, so thats why the elecroquads are being re-routed via the hybrid bridges.

    Back when the internet was a tad more wild west like, people used to DDoS Quake servers when they would rage quit. For a while it actually became a frequent enough thing that you knew when "such and such" rage quit, that the server was going to blow up in about 5 seconds. Wouldn't surprise me if those people still exist. For some people it was their entire method to "get back" for losing or being upset over a game. Was surprised I didn't see it as much when I went to MMO's but. I guess it's either A. harder, or B. stupider to try to blow up a corporations server than some joe-schmo running a server. It's not like it is legal or anything. Probably a great way to get into legal trouble if you don't get dropped by your ISP if found out.

    Just watching the Norse Darknet. Something has changed. Whilst the US is still the main target of the attacks from multiple compromised botted machines, I just saw the map go blank for a second and the attack list went mad as a major US Military attack took place heading east. It looks like US military mitigation retaliatory attacks are now taking place. Its absolutely fascinating to be honest.
