We have been mitigating an attack against a site on the Mandalore server for the past few hours. Things were under control, however the attacker just stepped it up another level and are currently very aggressively attacking the IP of the server.

As with any large ddos attack we are doing the best to mitigate the effects on our network and the server being attacked.

We will update this thread as things progress.

I have TERMINATED the account being attacked as it was a web site dealing with race content that violates our TOS and AUP and these types of sites do typically attack ddos attacks. We simply do no host trash sites like this one.

I am not sure how this site got past our screening for new accounts and I will be looking into that once this attack subsides.
