Today, I was checking out the site logs and I noticed that there was a DDoS attack taking place on the servers; at first it was very slow loading and then the attack increased and resulted in taking our servers offline mostly all day Sunday. I notified the hosting company and they took care of the servers by nulling root access to any machine on the subnet. Who could be attacking our website? The same people who got our other server disconnected last week?? I’m getting tired of this censorship and the right to know the truth! No lies by the MSM & No lies from our government. Anyway, I’m putting in more security features to hopefully deny these people. So what is a ddos attack?
In computing, a denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of efforts to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host connected to the Internet.
One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, so much so that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered essentially unavailable. Such attacks usually lead to a server overload. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.
Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the Internet Architecture Board’s Internet proper use policy, and also violate the acceptable use policies of virtually all Internet service providers. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations.
Who ever is doing these attacks are trying to censor the truth and our website. This is why I have constantly have to switch servers. Why doesn’t Alex Jones or any of the other sites care to even mention it?
