    Network Under Attack

    Network is under attack. It is a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack to be specific. All the connections, (OC48[SBC], OC3[Savvis], OC3[Verio]), are being flooded like anything. You may experience slow loading till the attackers are null routed.

    Null routed,? I would waste these bast*ards! What would someone gain from attacking this server?

    let's hope that the source of the problem is not "closer to home"

    DoS is nothing but flooding a connection with useless packets, so that legit users cannot access the network. DDoS is where the source of the attack is distributed, not coming from on IP address. This is much harder to control. Null routing is basically killing packets (or sending packets to a non-existant node) received by attackers. The null routing is done at the providor level.

    It wasn't our server, simply another server on the same network.

    That's cracking and not DDoSing. DDoS is impossible to prevent, and very hard to cure.

    No one from Australia could have made such an attack. Our pipes are simply not big enough.

    Any way of tracing it? Could it be based from within Australia? Or is it those Brasilian tossers again?

    Attack is from two places. One is Victoria through bigpond and the other is from Sydney through Optus.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Cannot be 100% sure... could even be someone in adelaide or perth who has control over nodes in melbourne/sydney...

    Good job. I did notice fairly slow responses todaym, they seem to be much better now.
