Just wanted to give N7 a head;s up that we're getting the login server down message when we try to log in.

 

Thanks.

standby  we are waiting for a server Dev to check in and see what the issue is and to reboot the server as needed they have been notified by the forums  posts already

I can see continously attempts of an old proxy client, hammering the server.

Maybe a bot...dunno.

 

Last restart from me today as i am leaving town now.

So treat the server well...

Hopefully there's more than one person who can restart the server.   🙏

What are we looking at here? Is this a fabric /hosting platform issue, or a DDoS? Something we can do to help resolve?

Zackman's post suggests a DDoS attack with an old proxy "hammering" the server.  The net-7 website is up, so the underlying IP address is good and the hired server farm is working.

 

I don't understand how to defeat a DDoS attack myself and suspect it requires adding specialized code to the host server's gateway [that code would discard all messages from the offending IP address(es) without reply]

Just making sure you guys know, the login server is down. :( Looks like the proxy bot is at it again. Wish we could IP block it.

So, why can't we? Surely there is a caller Id / IP somewhere in the logs. Add it to the firewall to drop the packets?

Seems affordable. Again, if the source is only 1 IP address, it needs to be possible to have the hosting company block that address. But before we move here, how certain is it that we're met with a DDoS? I would like to get involved here to see if there is something I can do to help. I'm a professional in the infrastructure area, and more than willing to lend a helping hand.

We have a server status thread already, no need to open another one.

There is no DDOS attack.

As long as there is no official statement about such  actions, you shouldn't make up anything and "sell it as fact".

Just because some1 is constantly trying to connect with an old proxy client is not matching the term DDOS.
