    Format the server?? what the hell is that gonna do? i think changing the ports for ftp and ssh might be of more use and maybe securing the box properly.

    Hi,
    The situation was that the network we are on was DDoSed causing the whole network to go down and crash.

    We where then told by a tech that whenever our servers where switched on it was sending out large data packets and causing the network to crash, understadbly our datacenter pulled the plug on the server and where investigating the problems.

    Ealier today I was told that the server might need to be wipe to get rid of the problem, then after that I am told that the server should be up at 1pm EST with all data intact.

    So I am hoping the server will be up at that time.

    Thanks

    well, i suppose it's good that they at least emailed us this time. i was wondering what the heck was up until i checked email.

    is this not a worm? because if i was an attacker i dont think i would keep dossing a box that wasnt even connected, or wait for it to be connected and dos it again.

    We have been dossed once a twice, we changed the ftp , apache and ssh ports which stopped it

    Hi,
    As for our dedicated server provider they have lost two servers due to the attack, I am hoping it won't come to this.

    Thanks
