Forum back online, for now
« on: January 22, 2016, 11:07:30 am »
The forum is (temporarily) back online. The downtime might be extended if the attacker continues his actions.

Read further for more information.



Mirroring the message originally posted at Neo Earth 4 Dead

L4DNation is hosted on a dedicated server in France, owned and sponsored by myself and a friend of mine. That server, apart from L4DNation, also hosts a couple of other sites, including the russian Teamspeak L4D3.RU. Without getting into the specifics of the drama that happeed between my friend and sheo aka The Grenis, I will state the real fact that we have now: the forum is now suffering from DDoS. The aforementioned person is responsible for the attack which is targetting the Teamspeak server, but due to the way how certain things work, any sites hosted on the same physical machine also end up getting affected.

This person is the russian equivalent of the South American DDoSer known as Skylar, who used to be a pain in the ass for L4DNation before I stepped up. He is notorious for this kind of behaviour in his home community, and lately beyond it as well.

The site will recover either when this guy gives up, or when I'm able to find an effective solution against HTTP attacks. Until then, L4DNation will remain down, and now you know why and who is to blame for it.
$10 says you aren't anywhere near a controlling position of the L4D3 scene in any continent when it happens.

Thing is he does what he wants, cause his able to and we are letting him do that. He abuses hes place and power in this community and people like me get banned for no reason. Only thing visor wants is more and more control so he can do what ever he wants.

Not to me though, to Egor. OVH doesn't care for raw TCP/UDP spam, so he's hitting HTTP on port 80 lmao, hence why disabling Apache/port 80 entirely helps.
