Website Down for Visitor Safety
Website Offline after DoS Attack
Worst Attack to Date
This latest attack on the website/domain is the worst yet experienced. While all my sites constantly receive hack attempts – mostly the usual WordPress exploits attempts every website is subjected to – None have caused so much disruption, or been so intense. The DoS attack swamped server resources, preventing even regular house-keeping process, e.g. cron, from running.
The only known damage was a PHP configuration error preventing Drupal from loading required scripts. This error was fixed late yesterday afternoon, and the site was briefly online for testing before being taken offline again.
The domain is up and in full service again. Several issues discovered kept the entire domain down for around 60 hours. Read more about the DoS attack
