server under attack
« on: March 04, 2013, 11:05:56 AM »
Have you seen forums lagging in the last days?

We were attacked by some script kiddie (probably from Sunnyvalle, CA). As far as I can tell attack was not dangerous, but it was eating processor time. Most likely it started around Feb 28th.

No noticeable lag for me either.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

What sort of attack was it? I didn't notice a lag.
