      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.

An IAF Spitfire? What's not to like - and I extra double like that one.

Hi Bibriel, what colours have you used for this? I ask as I am after colour info for an Avia S-199 from the same era in IDF service & I think what you have done with this looks very good. I'm guessing Dark green & Dark Earth over Medium Sea grey but would like some confirmation/guidance on this. Nice job too by the way. :thumbsup:

Steve.

That looks great. I particularly like the chipping. Very realistic. :speak_cool:

This is the best build of an ICM Spit that I`ve seen and I love the colour scheme, but what is the wartime RAF Mossie doing visiting a very green looking late 1940`s Israeli airfield!!

I love the weathering too, especially on the fuselage star of david,

All the best

That looks so good, especially the weathering. All the early Israeli aircraft looked really tired and you've got it just right well done!

Looks very nice

What colours did you use and is it brush or Airbrush painted?
