Increased protection for UnrealIRCd websites (please report issues)

Post by Syzop » Wed Feb 15, 2017 10:17 am

Like any website, we receive our daily share of scanners that scan the entire internet for vulnerabilities. We have also been the frequent victim of DDoS attacks for years now. More recently, however, UnrealIRCd is becoming the victim of targetted attacks as well, with thousands of hack attempts per hour. They are also becoming increasingly sophisticated. This has prompted me to upgrade the protection for our sites even more, adding more filters and other protections.

Due to the measures deployed there will likely be some page errors here and there on harmless pages as well. If you are encountering website problems then please report them to me at syzop@unrealircd.org and I will fix it. Don't post them here, email me instead. Possible problems include: error page shown while looking at documentation, reporting a bug, posting to the forums, etc.

Thanks in advance!
