Hi Folks

It was at the UKTrainSim site when it went down just before 17:00 last night. I wasn't very happy about the outage, I guess nobody does.
Hopefully the outage will be solved soon, but the owner might have other commitments at this time.

Hi folks

Matt Peddlesden has posted a statement at the UKTS fourm following a major downtime:
Matt Peddlesden wrote: I have no belief that any data has been compromised - and at this point it may yet be other system malfunction rather than anything malicious, I am watching logs at the moment having reset it all earlier to see if I can find out more information.

What I do know is that normally the server runs no problem at all for weeks at a time - yesterday the database kept crashing over and over and I restarted the whole system numerous times. These were down to the database becoming inaccessible which is usually because it's run out of available connection slots - because the others are all being consumed with something holding them open (which can be as simple as a nasty search).

Having reset it this morning i've not seen any more problems so far but am still monitoring.

The type of attack, if it is an attack, is called a Denial of Service attack - basically, if I keep sending packets and connections to your server, your server becomes unable to do anything else at best, and at worst will actually crash because of the overload. What these people do is to use a "bot network" - which is usually a bunch of hacked PC's because of malware that people have installed, and then instruct those PC's to attack a single address.

This is not a "steal data" attack, it may not even be an attack, at best, it's an annoying denial of service attack.

No panic folks, other than not being able to access the site of course :-P

Thanks for your patience.

Matt.

Pete Peddlesden has also made a brief apology at the News and Announcements section.
