    Yes there are some problems, at this point it looks like we may have some compromised servers and we're trying to track down the problem, what happens is something triggers the server and it literally overloads the router and right now we're trying to track down the server doing it and what's causing it. Hopefully we'll have this tracked down very soon.

    This is happening at both data centers and is affecting all servers.

    We have the servers back online at the new place, and it seems ok so far, but we're watching the routers like vultures, thanks to the old data center and its lack of 24 hour staff and any real support we're dead until I can call someone in the morning unless it clears up on its own out there, I am sorry and as most of my customers konw we're moving servers away from THAT place as quickly as possible.

    Not sure if this is the problem, but have you updated your openssl, assuming its installed?

    Earlier this week yes, we found bugtraq.c and bugtraq (compiled) in /tmp on just about every plesk server we have and upgraded openssl on everything.

    Which site? Other than server 1 which I'm patching up with all the latest cobalt goodies no servers should be having any problems right now.

    It now seems to be back... not sure how long it was gone, but it could have been only a very short time.

    Thanks.
