We got hacked, Let's up the security.

Post  Becca on Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:40 pm

So this morning, shit went down, i'm guessing ddos attack or whatever, but long story short a guy came onto the server saying he could reset it, we didn't believe him, nek minnit, server got reset, Psiiche banned the guy, then he came back on multiple accounts saying he would shutdown the server for a few hours/weeks, Pssiche continued to ban the person, Nek Minnit the server goes down again.

We need to do something about the ddos attacks, up the security, add the firewall, whitelist it for awhile if we have to, new plugins,

What i'm really waiting for is a session stealing to get on then the server is gone, It's not a hard thing to do and infact is very simple, back to the point,

We need to do something to put a stop to this.

As I said before, I can see if I may be able to counter hack in the near future.

If it could be done, it would be done. There is nothing we can do short of getting a third party to protect out IP for just $250 a month, bargain right? Considering we get DDos'd at a max of once a fortnight, with each attack lasting < 10 minutes, I don't think taking any drastic measures would be worthwhile. If someone does threaten to take the server down and Swing and I aren't online, tell them there are no staff available so they have nothing to gain. If they don't take a chill pill then ban them. We just have to play through the pain.

the server is currently having issues with kicking everyone every other minute or so... possibly related... I'm still a little hazy on what a DDos is...

DDOS, short for Distributed Denial of Service, is a type of DOS attack where multiple compromised systems -- which are usually infected with a Trojan -- are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Victims of a DDoS attack consist of both the end targeted system and all systems maliciously used and controlled by the hacker in the distributed attack.

What he said.

If people are still getting kicked then it may have some lingering effects, I will try and get the company that supplies our server to take a peek at the files, I don't have the ability to.

I believe the kicking has stopped now, I was on for an hour or two today and didn't get kicked once.

By tons of experience, do you know how to make a DDoS attack or at least stop it?
