I don't really understand why lately we seem so popular with spammers and hackers from China and Korea, but we've had some issues again today, including a denial of service attack which caused us to be off-line for a while. Our Apologies for that.

Turns out, the offending IP addresses originated from a company that has registered with godaddy actually sits in China, not in New York City as per the registration and none of the abuse email contacts work. Welcome to the underbelly of the Internet...

It especially sucks for the administrators. Maybe after the "war on terror" dies down, we can turn the special ops guys loose on the hackers and spammers? :twisted:
