pouncer Posted August 29, 2007 Share Posted August 29, 2007 A copue off weeks ago, my site was attacked by some sort off ddos/flood. The attacker had threatened me beforehand (it was a convo we were having on MSN) and when I retaliated he really did attack the site with his botnet, the site went down for 5 days. My host couldnt do anything about this attack, which was coming from 1000+ zombie botnet pc's. They told me i'd have to wait until the attacker stopped and deleted my account for 5 days so the ddos wouldnt affect their server Since then, i've been wondering if there are actions i can take to stop this kind of thing? I've come across this - http://ddosprotection.com - they told me they use some sort of filtering system and that i'd have to change my domain nameserver to the ddosprotection one. Has anyone ever come across a problem like this? Is there anything you've done? I've read many stories and news on how botnets have taken down sites/systems but never for once think it could happen to my own site Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
