Server Crashes

Post by laboRHEinz » Tue 16. Aug 2011, 15:25

Hi,
sorry for the multiple crashes today - the server has been attacked. The hacker caused the crashes.
BTW the hackers IP was / is 90.180.164.86 (an IP from Prague / Czech Republic). He is excluded now.

Edit: There was a further attack from another IP: 109.183.139.74. Also an IP from Prague / Czech Republic.

Edit2: Aaaannnd the next attack: 89.24.4.65 (you guessed it, yes it's from Prague / Czech Republic, too).

Edit3: 4th attacking IP109.183.166.169 (most likely it's just one person using different IPs).

Edit4: 5th IP: 89.24.7.86 (of course from Prague again). There's someone out there having fun ruining the game for others.

Update:
After I blocked the crash attacks, they kept taking place. Round about 150 (!) attacks within the last week - all from Prague. Fortunately, they didn't crash the server anymore since last wednesday.
