We've been going through a 6gb/s DDoS attack. I'm doing all I can with our hosting and CloudFlare to keep Rerolled online.
Thanks Teljair .
Who hates these forums so much that they would go to the extent of paying for an/or organizing such a huge DDOS attack?
Is it specifically RR or the hosting company?
We're also currently in what's called "Under Attack!" mode. We need to monitor the situation before I turn that off. So you guys may notice some caching issues. I'm personally noticing I need to refresh the page after clicking a link to see new posts.
We need suineg to make a poll so we can vote on which script kiddie felt micro-aggressed.
This cache thing is really messing with me.
Does this mean we're getting schlonged right now?
Calling me a Cunt is a lot like calling Hitler a Nazi, it's not exactly received as the insult you were intending.

i dont even know how you guys were able to post at all, this is the first time i was able to get through all day
Obviously this is someone's amod application.
Obviously J49's wife found out about the site and hired a ddoser.

The caching is still a pain. Trying to get that resolved.
Thanks Teljair. /brofist
I kinda missed all of you fucks.
I was up late last night with nothing to do and was like... Website down, this actually kind of sucks.
One day I hope to be as attractive and well spoken as Tuco!
Oh good, its back for now. I was dangerously close to being productive at work!
when you have been checking the same board(s) every day for 16 years and all of a sudden you cant do that, it puts a serious monkey wrench in your routine
No shit =/ Is this something money can solve or is it just "lawl Tyen is a dicknoodle" and deal with it?
Who did Ut piss off this time?
Glad we're back . . I was getting the shakes
We're still under attack. 10 gb/s attack started a little while ago.
Nearly had a heart attack when I realized how dependent on this site I am... Godspeed Teljair!

This happens just when rescorla was blowing the lid off global warming. Coincidence?
This Protection thing is really screwing up my browser with scripts and crap.
This doesn't make sense.. Not to diminish the value of Rerolled, but a targeted 10Gbs DDoS attack is typically something reserved for a high profile corporation or organization. It takes hundreds of zombie hosts to ramp up to 10Gbs of throughput, and either requires significant cash to "rent" the botnet, or significant time/resources to engineer and orchestrate one on your own. Who the hell has the time/money to do this, and why this forum?
it doesnt make any damned sense. is there a secret forum i dont know about that is posting classified documents about area 51 or something? what the shit is going on?
Hello, Another 10 gig attack started up. At this time we have been able to identify the source port of the attack and have dropped the traffic for that which is blocking most of the attack under TMS now. At this time I am showing the forum loading. Can you confirm the same ? Best wishes, Chris D. Linux Systems Administrator Austin, Tx -- That was about 2 hours ago. Still going slow.
This is BLM levels of fucking stupid. Spending any amount of time to take a site like this down is real retarded sir. I wish we at least knew who the retard was and not just guessing.

Whoever it is has a lot of time and/or money on their hands. Botnets of the size required to obtain that level of throughput don't come cheap.. Alternatively, if the perpetrator did it on his own, he spent considerable time/effort on a massive phishing campaign. Either way, the person must REALLY hate these forums.
This is the first time I've been able to load the site in a couple of days. It's also loading very slowly.
Just an FYI.
I'm unable to access the site from my home network. I had to turn wifi off on my phone to come post. Any ideas why I'm blocked?
From our server host - Incoming packets are being inspected first by our attack mitigation hardware before it reaches your server. Unfortunately it is a matter of waiting out the DDoS before things will get better and faster.
Good luck, Teljair. Not that luck is really a factor here. More like patience and coffee.
Finally got on. Like Chaos says, slow loading, but it does eventually make it. Which is cool considering the last couple of days.
This is very interesting. Maybe Brad's revenge?
Just got on for the first time today. Been getting Nada all day. Thanks for working on this Teljair .
Wtf, I thought we had ISIS sympathizers sufficient to curtail their aggression.
Almost had to socialize with real people
Thanks for keeping this stupid site up for us. I'm sure you could be doing something productive, like masturbating with a cheese grater, so your efforts are appreciated.
I have no idea what any of this means, but things are getting way better and thank you for doing whatever it is you're doing that I don't understand.
I get that too Elurin.
Schilling probably remembered the forum eviscerated him over the whole 38 Studios debacle and decided today was payback time!
I am going to join the bandwagon of, who the fuck would really bother enough to hit this place with a serious DDoS like this. Obviously there are plenty of "internet enemies" that Rerolled/FoH has collectively made over the years, but I just can't see anyone mustering the effort required for this shit.
Oh well, seems to be over for now, GG Teljair, no re.
Didn't realize how addicted to this damn place I was until the last 48 hours.
I think Tyen or Requiem would be the only ones with the technical ability to do this, no?
Is anyone else unable to view SS? Is it related to the DDOS?
Doesn't Tyen do this kind of thing for a business? Doesn't seem like it would be tough for him.
You can lease a ddos these days. No need for technical expertise beyond knowing how bitcoin operates.
I can't see either of those guys doing this, for one why? And for two, shit's a felony in the US, federal time. Operating a botnet and using it to ddos someone will get you sent to one of those for real prisons.
I don't think it would be either of those guys either but I have no idea who else it will would be.
I've gotten so much work done this week
Jesus I was going through withdrawals. lol
Thanks for keeping this place running!!
OK OK GOD DAMNIT GONE HOME IS A GAME. STOP THE DDOS NOW.
I love you guys
Posting doesn't go through half the time. A new post will show up but if you refresh it is gone ...
Can someone remind me what our irc server is so I have someone to talk to next time this happens?
One day I hope to be as attractive and well spoken as Tuco!
Well I'm going to play some pub trivia and have a drink. I'm done dealing with this shit for today! You guys don't pay me enough.
God bless you, Teljair. I was worried the place would never return. The only thing of import I could find via Google was a YouTube interview Draegan did re Crowfall. Would have been a horrible way to say goodbye to my favorite lurk-spot.
It is peculiar someone would go to the expense and potential jail time to attack the board like this. But if ever there was a group that can get some answers...
All work and no play makes Mr_Bungle a dull boy... Thanks for getting RR back up Teljair!
Well, unfortunately as much as I would like to know it's quite clear this was a DDOS (as opposed to some lame DOS) attack just due to the volume. Depending on how specifically it was accomplished, there's no way we're going to be able to find out who did it. Cloudflare will likely be able to get enough cooperation from ISPs to find out the bot locations themselves but that's only half the battle. Past that you have to locate the malware itself and figure out where the actually commands came from to trigger the attack. My guess is that will require law enforcement, subpoenas and cooperation.
The good news, if there is any, is that this did target a Cloudflare managed DNS which means they probably WILL investigate it themselves. If we ever find out who did it I'd be surprised, though, barring confession.
I'm not sure if 10Gbs is enough to register on the Richter scale and cause some actual investigation.
When did all of this start? It was around the 10th, wasn't it? I have the sneaking suspicion it could be related to this thread..
Legacy of FrostStone - A Velious Server
Yeah, maybe it's a case of correlation not equaling causation and maybe I'm just being paranoid. However, in my experience, "oldschool" EQers are usually the aspiest of the aspies and somebody running an EQ emu server that supports about 25 people has got to be Lord of the Autistic Fucks.
PS. Thanks for the work, Teljair.
Yea, they had all those botnet computers waiting around to multibox in EQ but Arcana wouldn't let them.
Thanks for all the time and effort to get this back up. I have no clue about any of this. I had to google DDoS. I'm the least tech person on the board
I think it's time to move to a Facebook group, post your profile for an invite.
You guys think that Tyen is some crazy bot maker. I think 99% of his "bots" were just scripts in greasemonkey.
oderint dum metuant
First time I've been able to access the site in 2 days. Lots of quirky issues.
Who could possibly be so butthurt to waste time and money to DDoS this site? That's like a new category of Loser.
