      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.

Airfix 1/48 jaguar , paragon weight wheels, paragon flaps/slats , paragon seat, pj productions pilot and some extradecals to finish it off. Paint was all extracrylics . Not the greatest of kits / builds but am reasonable happy to have finally finished one of the kits after several failed attempts !!!!

To Martin, Doc and Sandy,

Congratulations on your fine efforts; apologies for not saying so sooner. Thanks for your in-progress threads as well. It's great to see variety in the schemes chosen and it reminds me of the varied service that this aircraft has seen.

Andrew

2 Jag GR3a builds both Airfix 1/48 completed, up with the first done was 54(f) Squadron - XX119, OOB all weaponed up.

The second is in 41 Squadron - XZ103. 2005 display scheme, decals from Model Alliance. This aircraft in 2006 became converted to 6 Squadron livery as 41 Squ markings can still be seen vaguely on the side air intakes.

Changes made to a single UHF ariel opposed to twin (GR3) couldn't quite get that right, preshading worked better on the second model (mainly down to now having a compressor & proper airbrush.

I used two camera's for the pictures, my phone 3.2 megapixel and kodak digital 3.1 megapixel just to see what happened....well i found out the flash is much better on the kodak !

Hope they're not too bad.

Good looking models Graham... but... I think the camo grey (lower one) is far too light in shade (the flash doesn't help though) - on the real thing the difference between the dsg and camo grey is not that great and in some lighting conditions they are nearly identical. What paints did you use?

Cheers Damo, i used Tamiya XF-53 (match for humbrol 164) for the top and revell 374 (there or there abouts for humbrol 156) picture used for reference was this - gr3jaguarGJ-1.jpg

Ah, the perils of relying on just one photo perhaps? That shot's been over-exposed or played with in post-processing - there's a distinct lack of contrast for a shot that's clearly been taken in bright sunshine. Your model of the 54 Sqn Jag does show a better lower grey than the 41 Sqn one though.

Here's one of the 41 machine that illustrates the grey in bright sunshine:
