      DDoS and Brute Force Attacks   09/18/2016

      From the day following upgrade to the new forum software, 15th Sept until the 19th, we were 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.  This was followed up a couple of days later with a further attack that left more data to sift through, which we have passed on to our IT forensics people.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.    We don't believe that this is a random attack on balance, but for 5 days and a further evening 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. Just heard that the club I'm in is having a bring and buy and one of the lads has a Roden Gladiator so I think I will go with that. Thanks for the info gents
  2. I like to build a wood model alongside a plastic kit of a subject that I'm doing at the same time. Just my way but thanks for that. Heard the Edudard Gladiator is the same as the Roden one
  3. Just wondering of peoples thoughts on what is the best Gladiator kit on the market. Scale is not important to me
  4. Thanks for the help guys. That helps me no end
  5. Thanks Bill. That will do me nicely. Hence the reason why I failed my medical when I went to join the RAF in my teens
  6. Sorry this is a copy of the box art http://www.ebay.com/itm/Eastern-Express-1-72-Canberra-B-1-Mk-8-Aircraft-Model-Kit-/251191264765
  7. Hi Guys Just wondering if anybody could help a colour blind modeller. I have recently picked up an Eastern Express Canberra B1 Mk8 kit and wish just to model it with the kit decals. The trouble for me is that there is no paint references in the instructions ans being colour blind I cant decipher the colours. Any help if anybody knows any of the popular paint references for the scheme.
  8. Hi Jockney, sorry but everything went in the bin. That moment when your just totally hacked off and dont think ahead . Your right, it might be a bit tricky for an 8 year old but good luck anyway with your Victory. Might have another go later down the line..
  9. Its never going to happen but I would like to see British Leyland stuff. Morris Marina Austin Allergro On another note I would like to see items such as Austin Cambridges and such like. It would make a nice change to get these in kit forms instead of die cast.
  10. Ages and ages since I posted about this. Things were going great but alas my daft collie knocked it off the bench and then attacked it. Bin bagged, the model not the collie though he was close. Maybe in the future I will have a another crack at it as I was enjoying that build.Back to my aircraft for the time being . Maybe a bit of armour too just to break things up.
  11. Not a civil aircraft fan but you sure have amassed some cracking builds.
  12. I have a nice wee site that I park the car at and get a good view South over East Fortune. Binocs to hand ,picnic seat and a picnic. The dreaded cones haven,t found there way there yet.Plus I get out of doing the repairs on the garage roof that Im meant to be doing. Local knowledge is a handy thing and it doesn,t hurt my wallet.
  13. That wants me to throw a large wad of money at some plastic. Tis a beauty that is.
  14. This is my workbench that my son shares with me and Im forever getting on to him about tidying up after him.
