Think about it. Huh

Yeah, get the fucking tin foil.....

Well if that is the case there was no attack because there is no spoon.

Laughed hard at that.

If they wanted to stop atheism, they should either stop teaching the kids to read, or burn all the bibles. A temporary shutdown of a site full of people who are already atheist, thats only going to promote leaving the house and talking to people. Don't want that..

RE: TTA Site Attacked
The DDOS attack targeted the TTA top level DNS servers. That meant the domain name wouldn't get resolved and requests wouldn't find our server.

There are a few options I have but i'm raising a ticket with the provider to see what steps will be taken to harden the server from future attacks.

There is no reason to believe that we were hacked or anything of the sort. No one's private information was ever compromised and you should feel perfectly safe to use the site as you normally would.

Given the recent tension, I choose to point a finger at that SD forum.
I would also like to blame KC and Earmuffs for no real reason at all past scapegoating.

This is the equivalent of worrying if your Walmart credit card information was compromised because Target employees parked in all the parking places at the Walmart to keep shoppers out.

DDoS attacks are usually, almost 100% of the time, benign... they are just annoying.

RE: TTA Site Attacked
Directing a bunch of traffic at a site and overloading it has absolutely nothing to do with breaking security. You can't break security by sending lots of traffic.
