Yeah they are getting hit hard often. The other night some one posted in this sub about selling credit card information and personal Information. Not sure if anyone else saw the post. It was a long post with tons of prices and details regarding what kind of inforation you could buy. I think I'm going to clear out any messages I have that contain sensation information just incase any accounts have been comprised. Not saying they have been...but its better to be safe than sorry.

It's happening way too often to be a DDOS attack. If it is, someone is dedicating a lot of time or money to do so.

Why would anyone want to DDOS this place? It's not like Camaros are controversial.

Try around 8:00 AM Eastern time tomorrow morning . . . that's as close to a guarantee as any prediction ever gets.

Yep. I usually have my first look of the day around 5am (Pac) to check for Fast List additions and there seems to be issues a lot at that time of day.

distributed denial of service attack - a bunch of punks flood the servers with traffic so they get knocked offline. Not a "hack" any idiot can do it - well... any bunch of idiots.

Are we sure it was an attack? The server goes down at 2 am EST every morning for maintenance so I thought it was just extended maintenance.

DDOS or Distributed Denial of Service is an attack that is meant to overload a server with so many requests that it will basically lose its mind and therefore loose the ability to serve the Web requests to its clients (In this case the members of C5).

And more than likely it was not a DDOS attack. When I attempted to visit the site, it gave me a generic webpage that said the site was unavailable. If it was a true DDOS attack, none of us would have been able to see that page as the web server would have been declining requests. Right now I am inclined to agree with Mr. Draco and say that it was just an extended maintenance period. I will say that if it was a DDOS attack, it could have happened earlier in the morning/night (depends on your time zone) and they took the site down to stop the attacks and block them.

I'm guessing a lot of users here have many transactions, personal information, as well as just identifying information within their messages between vendors etc. Hitting a site like this would be a good opportunity to get that information.

A DDOS attack on its own will not lead to a compromise of data. Know if it was used as a means of a decoy for something else or to overwhelm primary defenses that is a different story

Does your browser just let you know that you are being redirected multiple times? As for a large amount of redirects, it could have been DNS records that were changed to take you to another server to see the "We are down" page.
