Moving some sites around / DDoS

Post by Syzop »

Moving bugs*
The box hosting bugs.unrealircd.org and vulnscan.org is going to be removed, therefore I've just moved both sites temporarily to devel* which is, unfortunately, significantly slower (especially for bugs*).
Anyway, this is just for a week or so till our new hosting box is ready... Then we'll move our stuff to the new box and things should be back at normal speed again :).

Recent DDoS attacks
the DDoS against our sites (against at least 3 locations: unrealircd.com, devel*, vulnscan.org/bugs.unrealircd.org) is pretty much over now.
The flood peaked the first few hours with 17000 connect/sec against each site. The total traffic caused by these flooders on devel* was ~40Gb in 7 days, with probably similar values for the 2 other hosting locations.
As a response to these attacks we moved sites around a bit and firewalled over 1000 IP's, so except for the 1st and 2nd day most sites were able to operate pretty normally.

odd.. everything seems to work fine from here & my shells.
Anyway, unrealircd.com seems to have problems too (or at least here ;p).
Perhaps this will all be fixed tomorrow :).

Yeah, a few hours after my last post, things should have been working fine... *.unrealircd.com was back up, which ment ns0.unrealircd.com was working, which is one of my nameservers.
So if anyone still has problems, let me know ;).
