      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      Since the 15th Sept until until yesterday afternoon (19th), we have been under a concerted attack by a person or persons using a number of 'bots and other people's Proxy networks to carry out what is called a Distributed Denial of Service attack, which is a method by which these 'bots submit thousands of requests to the website per second to overload the server and bring the site to its knees.  While this was going on, they were also making Brute Force attacks on our remote communications port to try and breach the server so they could do anything from format the hard drives to change ownership of the site, and bombarding the mailserver with similar bogus requests, some of which left some rather telling details behind.   We fought this with the tools available to us, and have gathering a substantial amount of evidence against the attackers, who persisted with their attack for almost 5 days regardless of the consequences to themselves.  This was a terrible mistake on their part.  On the advice of our Lawyer and fellow member JohnT, we yesterday informed the National Crime Agency and requested their assistance with the matter, and in an ongoing dialogue with them to find the culprits, so we are allowing them access to the server and its logs.  Hackers are seldom able to completely mask their real identity and location, and we have some very competent people working on it on our behalf, which is already reaping the rewards.   We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days we had to put up with some disturbance and interruption to the usually fast response of the website as we are seeing now that the attack has ended.  We will prevail, and don't worry about it.  We were the target, and these people will not win.  Karma will catch up with them   Mike, Greg, Dave & Julien.

  1. Well saw it up close and personal but the B2 was stunning this has to be one of the best builds well done John
  2. Thats looking great so far ..looking forward to seeing some more of this build
  3. Nice work so far Ian ..Lovely colour
  4. Nope it looks pretty bad close up matey ..youll see it at a show ..then you will laugh so hard you'll get a headache .. yes that's a Berlin Chiefy only real men build those .. little frightened people do black and green ones
  5. Cheers Guys for your comments , this has been the first kit I have built since October last year , when I totally lost the will to build anything , but I enjoyed building this kit even though everywhere I looked people said this was a rubbish kit , and to make a proper JS11 WAS TO THROW IT AWAY AND SCRATCHBUILD ONE ... But far as I'm concernedit looks like a JS11 so that's good enough to me. The good thing though what I found in the box was a set of Aftermarket decals with the Gitanes logo's ..which bought the car to life and made it look like the real car , the only down side was the Logo decals for the Facom and Champion spark plugs ..as you can see only one side has them on and those were the wrong version for the kit ..as I only have one set of the correct ones ..so I'm going to print out some more and remove the other ones on the model and replace them with the correct ones later on I forgot to add the kit was started by someone else ..so Steve told me ..when I started the kit I found the tyres all worn ready for me ..so those were the only part I didn't do I'll bring it along as long as its at the back of the table ..its not one of my best builds this ones fantastic at 30 foot away
  6. Well believe it or not I have been working on this kit since my last post ... well more progress this is a strange kit to do , as in you can't build anything until youve painted it ... but you can't paint it until you built it ..but I have worked my way round this ..somehow As for the decals these where a nightmare which I won't do into too much as in their total shiiiite and don't fit properly !! and then after 3 days of microset , micro sol and of course half a ton of klear ..only for them to lift up and rip when I put some tammy tape on ..luckily I had spares ( Sorry Phil no ciggie advertising for your one ) So heres some pictures (Dont laugh too hard guys ) Seat Steering wheel and dials Completed engine and fitted exhaust system Now next picture as we know Cigarette advertising has been banned by some guys in Europe ( Funny some other guys in Europe did that in the 1930's ) , as we will look at this and go buy some ciggies I had to mix up the paint myself which was 9 parts revell 52 1 part revell 54 ..But the decals look pretty bad
  7. I've built both the Tamiya and Hobby Boss versions ..to be honest go for the Hobby Boss as it has more different variations ( Swedish, Danish etc etc ) ..plus its half the price of the Tamiya ..But the Tamiya is the Easiest kit to build
  8. Cheers Guys for your help
  9. is there any decent After Market for this kit , like Cockpit and seats and decals ??
  10. Cheers for that I'd buy it and build it OOB That would be good for a laugh
  11. Cheers Phil your a top man those pictures help me out
  12. Yep be sitting on my sofa in a nice warm house with my feet up watching the F1 and waiting for Lost to start ..instead of sitting on a uncomfortable chair in a freezing aircraft hanger
  13. Thing is you look older than him
  14. Thats the kit and have to say its pretty good , even the rear suspension this straight even Tamiya couldn't manage that on their 1/20 P34 Hi Phil ..Not sure on the tyres apart from they are black and rubbery but they seem pretty OK ..I'll have a looky at those pictures if you don't mind
