      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.

UKMIL Nimrod

9 posts in this topic

For those that didn't know, not only do I do Models for RAF Waddington and a Model Railway, but also I have an interest in flight sim and was responsible for the UKMIL Nimrods (MR1 R1 MR2 AEW3)

The Nimrod was my first Flight Sim Creation and I have decided to give it a little revamp with new skills I have developed.

First to get the touch up is the aircraft I see daily the Mighty R1. A major short fall, I'm sure current uses have found, is the lack of a VC. This has been adressed

Here are a few WIP shots, Other shots are only available for Club Members over at

www.ukmil.org.uk

The 1st image is taken at UKMILs virtual Version of RAF Waddington, the basic Nimrod is a AI aircraft from the Waddo Package

The 2nd is a Work in Progress shot of the all new VC

Nice work Mattie. I've been wanting to try out something like this since I found a South African site that did the same thing for the Shackleton.

Mattie,

between building the Airfix kit and doing the flight sim stuff I guess we could officially dub you the Britmodeller "Nimrod GURU" :worthy:

Regards,

Michael
