TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

The DDoS spam bot from hell (a suburb of China)

Happy new year everyone,

I'm back online to put out a fire. My inbox was full of alerts that the CPU on the server that runs the site was maxing out.

Well boys and girls, it turns out www.turnkeylinux.org has been under an escalating distributed denial of service attack that started about two weeks ago. To the best of my knowledge the site continued operating normally. We use a ton of caching. Did any of you notice a slowdown?
