      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.

1/35 Dragon SD.kfz 234/1, German recce vehicle

14 posts in this topic

Here is my complete 1/35 Dragon Sd.kfz 234/1

6 PZ.Division, Austria 1945

Besides some infantry gear from the sparebox, its straight out of the box


Dunkelgelb, Olivengrün and Chokoladenbraun are from WEM

Wheel wash is Valejo and life colour mix

I used Mud brown, Ligtht dirt and Dark dirt from Flory models

I also used MIG's "oil & grease"

Varnish is Modelmaster

Decals from the kit, helped with DACO's decal solution

This is without a doubt the best armour kit I have ever build, the fit is above the scale, I used a little Mr Surface 500 two small places, thats it.

Ok I admit that the instructions are at time challenging, but use your common sense and you will be all right.

Dragon has exelled this time, the fit is so good that sometimes I ruinded the fit when painting the items,

I look forward to starting my SD.kfz 234/2.

Not much is know about this family of vehicles, only a few book are written, and since only the Sd.kfz 234/3 and Sd.kfz 234/4 have survived

the war, detail on this subtype are even more scarce

There for I have made a couple of "leadership" decisions, I have plaved several 20 MM magazines in the turret, ready for use, I have places extra

kit inside the vehicle, Being an ex recce soldier myself, we offen left extra gear on the vehicle when dismounted






Here are a few pics so you can se a little of the interior, it has some MP 40, MP 40 Magazine pouches,

gasmask carriers, helmets and amo boxes




Hope you enjoy, contructive critisism is off course welcome
