DDOS Attack

Today some funny guys attacked my server :) using ddos attack (dos attack against HTTPD)

Also Known as “Denial of Service Attack” .

Definition from wikipedia give us the following :

In computer security, a denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Typically the targets are high-profile web servers, the attack aiming to cause the hosted web pages to be unavailable on the Internet. It is a computer crime that violates the Internet proper use policy as indicated by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB).

I like the “High profile part …

Any way server was down for a while till i block those stupid ip’s and make a restart to the server .

They are from Malysia , Holland and Algeria .

219.95.97.185
81.52.163.6
