      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.

My rather small N layout

6 posts in this topic

Well this is all I have got and it's in desperate need of renovation.

I was going to have is running locos and rolling stock from BR's late 50 early 60's but on investigation I found the layout is an old German layout. So I have got a German loco and a couple of carriages, plus three little VW Beatles and plan to renovate it (at some point) complete with continental overheads etc.

Then the plan is to sell it on and build something more fitting to my collection of early BR diesels.

I used to have some German bits way back in the past, very impressive they were to, even had a "bendy" loco (articulated in the middle like bendy buses) for going up the mountains round very tight track curves.
