At this stage Silver Stackers is down while a Chinese Bittorrent DOS attack is underway. Basically a Chinese ISP trying to block torrents by DNS spoofing the trackers with a random IP address - and someone has decided that Silver Stackers was due to receive a bazillion unwanted requests to stop the locals from watching downloads of Fifty Shades of Grey. Mitigation efforts are underway, however this is likely to be a sustained attack for a while. Additional mitigation support has been sought from our hosts. The sheer volume of requests has compounded the existing performance issues the site was under (that were due to be worked on today), however activities on fixing general performance have been put on hold by the DOS attack response. More information will be provided as it is available.
Due to persistent database issues, the forum is offline while repairs are carried out today. Please do not try to post to the forum until an "all-clear" announcement is made. Thank you.
