Do they want something in return? Will they send a ransom note? What exactly do they expect to gain from disrupting your website?
No, Ransom Note not needed they do because they can, At this point its getting stupid who would really want to take down a forum? Its for our enjoyment and advertising pays for it and with Mark's hard work.

The RC heli industry is not about Fun, Learning, Friendship, and Mutual Respect, like some would have you believe.

Just a whole bunch of insolent little kids in a pissing match.

It's more than stressful, it's playing with taking away Mark's livelihood. All this, simply because there are evil morons in the world.

It's not like it's an April Fool's Joke or something benign which lasts a couple of hours. This attack has been continuing for days.

This DDoS attack is not funny.

These Dark Heart's are Haunted Soul's - It all way's catch up.
Bad Karma, health, family or very worse. Can't laugh their way out of it ---- once they get their. They sleep every nite on it wondering when and if and what ??

Place's their Occupational Organization at risk : Over pride and Envy : Some form of satisfaction or power - dark heart's find pleasure in Pain. Terrorism of cruelty.

Place's Company he work's for at a tremendous Legal Liability or Financial failure. Themselves are cunning smart and will be looking.

Those he's networked their I.P.s at risk also , if their is investigation - their Company business lively hood's are at risk - with their employee's -- especially if they are being serviced by the initial provider committing it.

I'm sure all and MORE will stand behind Mr . R, Vendor's, supplier's, customer's and further : Loyalty is more than deep.

It's a Nuisance : Just power thru it - and provide all preferred select business to those that support the site service.

Loyalty is BIG when it come's to Customer Service !!!!!

The Trusted My guess this trial will pass and RR. will continue to be known as the Go to Guy's If it is vendor committed - they did it to them selves.

RR is really zapped today. I have not been able to get my RC heli fix for sure.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

isn't it suspicious that the solution will cost 100k when that is what Marks Camera/film gear costs?

Someone once said "woe to those who offence's come by"

Hang in for the ride, RR is experiencing turbulence, fasten your seatbelts.

(this ddos is definitely NOT about helis but a demented returd perhaps seeking revenge)

All the best Mark

Mark, some years back I made contact with a Military man who could do computer things most everyone can't, and I believe he lives in South Haven Michigan. He owes me a few

The attack is obviously having an effect, as there were only 216 members online at 2:56pm. It has always been 600 at a minimum.

Mine has been down all day.

What gets me is the I'll try all day to get in, then when I finally do, I see 300 or more people already on. I've concluded that while I myself can't get in, others can.

Like right now, the site appears to be working fine for me, but I realize there may be hundreds trying to get in that aren't so lucky.

It's the nature of a DoS attack. Think of the website as a warehouse with 1000's of truck loading ramps. normally with a peak of 1000-2000 users there is plenty of open slots for us to get a truckload in and out. under a DoS attack there are millions of trucks being sent to those loading docks and abandoned. Once someone gets out there and moves the truck away there is an open slot.

If you are lucky your request gets that open slot.

It's a lot of work for the warehouse to determine if that is or is not a legitimate truck (request) and a lot more work to clear it if it's not.

Could probably carry this analogy on further but you get the idea.

With some of the hacker networks out there controlling 100's of thousands of hijacked desktops all over the world it's not hard to send a few packets to "runryder.com". No one spot it the culprit. you have to filter based on the signature of the request. If that changes all the time then it gets very difficult. I have to make programatic guesses that this similar or same type of request has hit too many times in a given timeframe and start denying them. Put that logic at a gatekeeper (the $100k device) and pay some company a lot of money to keep up to date on signatures.

jschenck,

So this is software that has been distributed to 1000's of PC (without the owners knowing it) and is being controlled by one person?

And from time to time that one person sends out a request/order to all those PC to go visit RR all at the same time?

Is that what is happening here?

Anybody know how a piece of hardware negates this?

It sounds like it would be software issue, but I guess not.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter
