    Getting trouble accessing the site, server not responding. Happening quite often. Most recently between about 6.00 and to towards sorta 12ish. Is it me or is the server running red?

    Sort it! I need my fix, started getting withdrawl systems this morning :(

    Re: What's goin on SDM

    I wasn't going to post a thread up about this because I didn't want to bring any attention to the problem.

    However, it seems we're under attack by some malicious hacker types who think it's fun to bombard our mail server with requests thus slowing the whole server to a grinding halt.

    I'm currently in the process of reviewing our options at the moment so I'm not sure what I can do to give you 100% uptime as yet, but rest assured I'm working on it.

    Sincerest apologies for the downtime.

    Re: What's goin on SDM

    Damn, no need to apologies ... what a bunch of wankers!! I always like to check when I get up.

    I have started noticing the problem, only recently though. Hope you can get it sorted, because I'm sure it's taking a big tool on amount of post, only 12 by midday usually about 30 at that time and I have usually checked about 3-4 times by then hence resetting the post cost.

    Hope you get this sorted. Good Luck young warrior. :respekt:

    Re: What's goin on SDM

    It seems we suffered a similar attack late last night which lasted through to today. I've had enough of our current server house now and I'm seriously looking at other options. Hopefully I'll be able to move the site to a new server within the next week if all goes well.

    Apologies yet again, please bear with me!

    loads of forums get hacked most hackers use a programme that will appear on ur server just look on the server for a something that should't b there then boot it off it will appear as 'brute' of something like that on the server, make sure sue the hacker aswell.

    Good news! We've splashed out some cash and signed up for a new server based in the UK (we're currently hosted in America). I'll be configuring the new server and moving files over the next few days (if I can!) then we'll look to switch to the new server in the next week.

    Possibly a little, but I'm sure it will be minimal compared to the downtime we've been getting and it'll be well worth it! :)

    Just FYI, we were attacked again this morning, that's why the site was offline from the early hours till about 10pm (n)

    Apologies for the downtime again (about 5 hours), still waiting for the new server setup to be completed.
