Who's Ddosing The Site Over Lunch?

Recommended Posts

Is it just the popularity of the site and slightly weedy servers or are there signs of a targetted DDOS attack vector?

We must be told.

I've had problems yesterday and today. Seems to go down after lunch with some weird message about a database error. Yet other people seem to have been posting while it was down for me.

Basically the nasty hackers have control of a lot of unsuspecting sheeple's PCs and make loads of request to a given website at the same time. If your web servers can serve 500 requests/min and they hit you with 5000 then the server throws a wobbler and usually falls over.

Unlikely to be DOS attack as I could reach the front page. It was only the forum that was giving a database error. I think the forum database must have collapsed under the strain.

Difficult conclusion to reach without knowing where said database lives, what else it's used for, or any of that kind of stuff. That said, it probably just had a flid, as these pesky computery things sometimes do.

So its not just me? Good, for a moment I thought I had visited one too many dodgy porn sites and got a bug.

About that time everyday they run outta 50 pences for the meter.

Struth, let's hope that that is not the issue...the 'SQL' thingy freaked me out somewhat....''Is it me??'

Front page could be cached.

Definitely wasn't cached on my system, besides if you can't connect to a site that's cached, IE tells you.

Ahhh! There's that assumption of entitlement again. It's done so much damage over the last decade...
