      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Sad to see Bismark Swordfish pilot Jock Moffat passing

5 posts in this topic

Yes, sad indeed but what a life and what an age. He made a difference to this country which very few people can claim. We are lucky that people like him - and he was nothing but a lad really - had the guts to do what they did

 

RIP

Indeed Simon .  I saw him being interviewed and he talked about the strike mission on the day Bismarck was sunk.  It never went in and they circled as the Rodney and KG V had done the necessary but he was haunted and sad at the German sailors in the sea.  He lived in the next town from here as a boy. Funny that Eric Brown lived near here as a child too and we lost them both this year.

I don't think many service people relished seeing others in such situations and it is because Jock had to do such a job that two generations since have not had too, certainly on the scale of WWII.

Rest in peace Jock.
