Server attack misery .....

The whole weekend including until o-dark-thirty this morning (Tuesday) was spent mitigating attacks on our servers.

If I got 16 hours sleep from Friday Night through Tuesday morning at 5:00 AM I got a million.

The attacks were severe but the surprising thing came this morning when we found the lead attack not coming from outside the US - but from Soft Layer Servers in Dallas and server logs will prove it.

We suspect one of two reasons or possibly both ..... the first reason and most likely is that they have a bunch of compromised servers trying to infect/compromise other servers - similar to what was seen in the summer of 2001 with hundreds of thousands of servers attacking others from a worm that took months to eradicate or the second and less likely is because we have taken so many of their clients recently beating the snot out of them in the hosting arena and taking even more clients with our new FacePressSite.com product.

Probably needless to say ..... but our Dedicated Server Guard has had heavy updates due to these attacks and ready to kick ass taking no names later - we are sure that our subscribers to Dedicated Server Guard will be very pleased.

It is over for those attackers we have identified and will be over to future attackers - this is how we make our living is with these servers, and therefore we are relentlessly motivated to protecting them.

Heads Up: Hosting Clients and Dedicated Server Clients, Thursday 26 May 2011 will be the monthly Full Backup.

Don't Use Blogger - How to Lose 8 Years Work in 2 Minutes

By: dburdon

Due to what may be arbitrary actions by Blogger and what I suspect is underhand activity by a visitor from India (I have the analytics), I appear to have lost an 8 year old blog with 280+ posts. i have tried to get the blog reinstated via Blogger but it seems Google doesn't have the resources to respond.

The blog was taken down yesterday morning following a visit from IP address 182.64.183.30 from Chandigarh in India. The visitor spent 26 seconds on my blog and then appears to have either left a comment that triggered a spam filter or pressed the "report abuse" button. 1 minute and 31 seconds after the visitor's arrival I received the following message from Blogger:

Hello,

Your blog at
travelthinking.com has been reviewed and confirmed as in violation of our Terms of Service for: SPAM. In accordance to these terms, we've removed the blog and the URL is no longer accessible.

For more information, please review the following resources:

You will see that I was using a custom domain. The root Blogger domain is travelthinking.blogspot.com. The Blogger domain returns the following message:

Blog has been removed

Sorry, the blog at travelthinking.blogspot.com has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.

Did you expect to see your blog here? See: 'I can't find my blog on the web, where is it?'

I have spent 8 years on the blog. And its gone. You can read more on a new blog I have set up.

Bob writes in ..... WordPress Version 3.2 coming!

One of our Clients ..... Bob ..... whom of course we spelled his name backwards so that nobody will know whom we are talking about ..... wrote in giving us the heads up about the new version of WordPress coming - it looks like in June meant to deal with Google Algorithm Changes ..... Bob seemed somewhat worried that our servers may not ready for WordPress 3.2 because the new version requires a higher level of PHP and MySQL then was required with previous versions.

Well Bob no need to fret ..... We were on this when the change and new requirements were announced with the release of version 3.1 :-)

On September 7th 2010 we were officially ready for Wordpress 3.2 which was confirmed by the WordPress Plugin called Health Check ..... which tests and rates  your server for compatibility and a few other things .....  and Bob :-) the results about our servers from Health Check which I checked today for fun which are the same as in September 2010, and I quote which rated our servers:

Excellent: Your server is running PHP version 5.2.14 and MySQL version 5.1.53 which will be great for WordPress 3.2 onward.
