      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.

  9. Just finished these two, not very good kits, but build for fun using the DP Casper decals, always liked jets in camo. MIG-21 are from Condor a very basic kit, not very good , same to say for the Aero that is a issue by Propagteam, i think and old Smer, also very basic not very good But the decals are super, cherers Jes
  10. Just finished this one, out of the box, Decals from Aeromaster Cheers Jes
  11. Was ready for paint job and i had already painted the tail white when i then try fitted the gunpod they where to short, they came from an old Revell set. They have to extend all the way back to the flap edge, so have to wait for others to issue correct gunpods. So now it will be a regular A-5, chose a JG54 a/c flown by Trautloft with interesting camo. Cheers Jes
  12. Almost ready for the paint job, i have attached the brackets for the Föstersonde to the wings, and chosen to cut the Föstersonde in halfs to fit the brackets instead of making holes in the wings for it to go trough, think it is easier this way. cheers Jes
