      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. a bit of fun here; http://tailhooktopics.blogspot.ca/2012/02/lockheed-p-80-shooting-star.html Cheers, Tony
  2. Canada retired their Labrador/Voyageurs many years ago and now flies the EH101 Cormorant in the SAR role. Tony
  3. I don't think it was your fault. Every time I see this Academy/Italeri Camel built, the guns are always upside down, i believe the instructions are to blame. Good one !!! Model On !!! Cheers, Tony
  4. Blue suits and yellow helmets (from the Motorbooks 'Blue Angels-50 Years of Precision Flight') Cheers, Tony
  5. Hey, I could be wrong but in the top picture(RH side view), I don't see a demarcation line on the aft section by the tail pipe. Tony
  6. pages 38&39 of Michael O'Leary's "Shooting Star" by Osprey has a 5 FIS T-33 58-610 with ADC undersides. The demarcation line is easy to see and can't be mistaken for reflection or anything else. There are a few more similar T-birds painted pics in that publication. Your subject pic does not have ADC undersides IMHO. Cheers, Tony
  7. Lovely work, I have a Matchbox/Aeroclub FR9 on the desk right now, in progress as an Ecuadorian aerobatic team mount. Cheers, Tony
  8. "Warning" Airliner.net photos not allowed--post a link instead
  9. I snapped a couple of photos of that one when it stopped in Moose Jaw, but I thought it was '88. Tony
  10. A HobbyCraft slatted wing and the F-30 hard edge wing are the same size. It is actually a Sabre Mk6 wing. A real narrow chord slatted wing is narrow by 6" at the root & 3" at the tip. No injection kit offers that wing except for the matchbox 'A' or the two kits of the 'D'. The CAC Mk30 had a narrow chord slatted wing. Tony It is easy to ignore the chord difference in 1/72
  11. If you ignore the fact the kit's slatted wing is the wrong chord. Hard to spot in 1/72 scale. Tony
  12. all in 1/72 5.8mm long x 1.6mm high at the rear. Located 52mm from a/c centreline. As thin as you can make them. This graphic was scanned at scale, see if it comes through in scale; Cheers, Tony
  13. Beautiful work and very convincing weathering !! It can't OOB, but it's close enough for some folks. Also, CT-133s after 62-63 had a NACA scoop and a proud rear facing vent in the nose doors. Other visible differences are wheels, and ejection seat headboxes, Those nav lights on the tip tanks are fiction as are the actuators for the landing gear doors. All T-33 types had flat horizontal stabs. Could be a construction error. Anyway, good job Mattias Cheers, Tony
  14. As Paul mentioned, no. Sugar scoops were installed in mid '58 to both Orenda powered Mk5s and 6s. Canada had replaced all their Mk5s in Europe by then and sent some to W Germany. AMS resin does scoops in 1/48 & 1/32, I had to vacuform my own in 1/72. Cheers, Tony
  15. Academy boxes the Mk6 and calls it a F-86E I doubt that IDEA has changed anything concerning the speedbrake shape. One thing to watch out on these Sabres is the location of the big nose gear door. Some boxings have it mounted on the RH side when it should be on the left(port). Cheers, Tony
