      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.

Hobbycraft 1/32 SPAD XIII's in stock

6 posts in this topic

Its a good kit, a bit basic by modern standards but looks to build up into a fairly nice looking model. I think the decals were judged by some to be poor, but its screaming out for some more decal sheets with some different options on. There are some reviews on the Modeling Madness and Roll Models websites.

I've just ordered one.

Do you think they'll re-release their long awaited 'new mould' Camel? These kits are as close we are likely get to a 1/32 model since WNW have no plans to produce one. Considering the significance of this aircraft, and the Fok. Dr1, you'd think WNW would jump at the chance.

They do list both new mould Camels and the DRI in the Hobbycraft kit listing on there website so i suspect they will get released at some point.

It would be great to see WNW do something special with the Camel and DRI but they have said in the past they would not make a kit if an already good kit is available, so I suspect we may not see them doing a DRI. But just to throw a curve ball into this they did make a Pfalz IIIa and Roden did a Pfalz III, so why cant they do a 1F1 Camel or a comic version.

Just a thought but wouldnt it be great to see a 2F1 Camel :)

Purchased the new Avro Arrow in Toronto at the end of last year, think we can expect new and re-releases from them this year.
