A Tech Update from Greg Griffith re: a Denial of Service attack on the SF/T19 server

Posted by Karen B.

Over at Stand Firm, Greg Griffith has posted a brief update about a denial of service attack that affected the shared TitusOneNine / Stand Firm server early this morning. You can read the details, and should you be able and eager to do so, find information about how to contribute towards the combined server hosting costs here.

Note, that comment thread also contains info re: a backup site for Christopher Johnson's Midwest Conservative journal whose site also went down at a similar time, but appears to have been more severely affected. Hmmmm.....

This elf is very thankful for Greg's excellent blog admin support and especially for all his work in setting up a server with load balancing capacity that has been able to handle even the most outrageously busy news days in the Anglican blog world. Thanks Greg!

Now this elf will be "bossy" again! Go let Greg know how much you appreciate his hard work...! And please give if you can.

I just wanted to stress that I have had no indication from our host that the attack was directed at us. We are one of several clients on the same “server farm,” and there are several such farms managed by our host. It could have been an attack on one of them or all of them, I don’t know. It could have been an attack intended to shut us down, or not, I don’t know. If I get any news worth repeating I’ll do so…
