    Exclamation Downtime Explained
    All,

    From 6:57am to 9:11am EST we had some idiot (IP resolved to China) think they could blow out ABW by sending multiple (lol multiple... more like shoot loads) of database requests which to most seemed like only a slow down. At 8:45am I locked down the board and booted them.

    All I can say is - you really do get what you pay for - Thank you firewall, load balancer and my rackspace servers.
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Will take more than some idiot to bring down ABW.

    Been talking with Rackspace myself and they really do rock.

    An other board for affiliate mgrs was targeted on April 20th and all the messages wiped out. It looks like you have a much better protection. I notice the slow down early this morning. I don't know if these attacks are related.

    Any chance of publicizing that IP?
