    Stop it! I had to go talk to my wife tonight since I couldn't get on DC.

    What's to be gained from a DDOS? The satisfaction that you inconvenienced some people for a period of time? If so, it seems pretty juvenile.

    My wife and I noticed today's attack at the same time, almost in unison. "Honey, DC is down!"

    We did, in fact, get hit again and believe it is a former member that we have banned several times....

    I'll be willing to bet it was the dudes from "GUN GUYS" that were behind it.... Lets go water balloon their tree house!

    If you don't mind me asking...

    Roughly how many IP's is this attack coming from? 10, 100, 1000?

    If it's a small-ish number of boxes on high-bandwidth connections, you could contact their ISP's and have the problem mitigated that way.

    If you're looking at a significantly higher number of "zombies" on the offending botnet, that approach won't work. The best DDoS protection is at the ISP level - have you talked to DC's webhost about this matter?
    About the only other things you can do are mirror your site on another server with it's own dedicated connection, or wait it out.

    Again, if I can be of any help (sorting through the logs, contacting ISPs, etc...) let me know. I'd be glad to contribute to the site in a non-monetary way :)

    I was once young and stupid enough to "fight fire with fire" when DDoS'ed. I doubt you'd get away with it now - this is the age of the lawsuit, after all. But uh, if you do happen to locate the IP address(es) of the individual(s) behind this, I have a fair bit of bandwidth to donate :)

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Same thing happened to another of my forums, but it was a "bots" invasion. I'm glad I don't understand this stuff, it makes my head hurt! Glad to see you back up!

    These days also criminal ..... and with enough resources these perpetrators can be found. Guess they think anonymity is still everything!

    Not a whole lot I can post "out here" regarding it, but will say that it was identified as coming from a botnet. I have been talking to the host and some others to get it resolved on more of a long term basis. I used to "fight fire with fire", too but prefer to fight in other ways.

    Thanks for the offer, by the way, I may at some point shoot you a PM. Up to my ears right now....

    I understand the need to keep this out of the open but if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know!

    botnets don't attack by accident, and they aren't cheap. they are usually ran by the electronic equivalent of mercs. and, rarely by individuals with strong motives.

    they do everything from gather information quietly for businesses, to full blown assaults to take out competition.
