    A very pleasant surprise to see DFI home page come on my computer screen. Last 3-4 days were very boring.

    Boring, frustrating and filled with anger.

    For the staff working to get the site back, add sleep deprivation and stress to get the site back.

    And anxiety. At one point, all of DFI, every post ever made by everyone, every thread, forum structure, static images, everyone's account details (encrypted of course), was stored in the micro SDHC card of my Samsung Galaxy S, in a cpmove.tar.gz file. I put it there so whether I'm at work or home, I can upload DFI back to its server.

    How do you protect from DDOS? Place a module on the home page requiring captcha and close the rest of the site off from non-members?

    Finally troubles are over guys really it was hectic the last 2 days, we have just to update the vbulletin script once and we will be rocking like before , for now attacks are over and done, it was an exploit in hardware that the fake pakistani forum guys tried to exploit , their site anyways is no good and they do this to all the indian websites from time to time .

    armand it was due to the pearl script that exploited apache and released just last friday , when this guy HARIQ PAKI KHAN used his donated laptop to bring down the apache.
    we have ddos protection and mitigation suites on for all 3 of our servers yet the bug exploited it .

    We are now routed through the clouds via cloudflare too.
