      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.

Mosquito Single Type Group Build

74 posts in this topic

Nice one Mish :thumbsup:

I'm in with a 1/48 TIII - probably RR299 in its final 1996 scheme with D-Day stripes.

My uncle started his De Havilland apprencticeship working on Mossies and retired from BAe at Hatfield in the early 1980s. I have fond memories of Hatfield's family days where I saw RR299 flying. I'll also never forget seeing it in formation with Comet G-ACSS although I think that was at Old Warden.

How about a DH group build in future?

Revell 1:48 B Mk IV - no idea what markings, will work that out later.

Wheels up to avoid the problems with the undercarriage on that kit, just need to find 2 pilot figures that will fit!

Mish

I have a long term plan to do modify a 1/32 Revell into an Oboe BIX with some Paragon resin which I could bring forward to fit in as all I really need is the willpower and incentive if thats ok?

Can't guarantee it will get finished or even be any good but the spirit is willing!!

Mish, thanks for letting me co-host (I'm wondering what i've let myself in for! ;) ) just a quick question I have a 24th Mossie which I started

just cockpit and engines, with basic paint on them, could I use that one? or should I start one of my new untouched 24th Mossies?

Regards Rob...

Rob, you can use your stated Mosquito as it's under the normally accepted 25% rule, anyway you are the co-host :) That way you could send me one of the 1:24 mosquitoes to build and enter with :D

I'm in. But I recall showing interest when the idea was first suggested so look forward to this.

Note to self:....Must resist getting involved in so many GBs!!

I would be up for this.

Probably go with a Tamiya 1/72 Mosquito with the Paragon Designs Highball Conversion.

Well - the thought of digging out one of my Revell Mozzies is very appealing...

More time to prepare and research ?

I'm ok with that as I have just discovered how much I thought I knew from the several books that I have and how little I actually know !

A "situation normal" with me for most things sadly !!

I've no objections, I suppose it gives me even more time to find more resin to pack into this monster, and to buy some white metal undercarriage legs to take the weight.
