    Hello,
    I have been trying to go onto see cyclopsds.com but haven't been able to. Is it just me?

    Not working for me either. They're probably just doing some maintenance.

    It's a good thing that this site has a copy of 1.4 Final.

    Actually both DNS servers are working at thiis second, but seem to only be sporatically working. Just In the past few minutes I have started to get limited responses to requests aimed at teamcyclops.com

    However, now that the DNS servers are working again, the HTTP server is having problems. (The HTTP servers were working just fine while the DNS was down)

    It looks like teamcyclops.com is being hit by a DoS attack.

    Crap. Both Servers went offline. (no ping response anymore). This definitely appears to be a DoS attack. (Or worse. The trace route shows zero intermediate hosts, which is definitely not right. There is definitely at least one host between me and a Chinese server. (i would expect around 10 or so))

    Well, whatever is going on, it is not good. neither the DNS servers nor the HTTP servers seem to be running at the moment. (The Httpserver appears to be running on ns1, a.k.a. chinamotif.CHINA-DNS-HOSTING.COM)

    DoS attack= Denial of Service attack. Basically sending so many requests to a server as to overwhelm it and force it to stop working.

    Oh, great. A DoS. "ns1.china-dns-hosting.com"? I thought they were based in Europe.

    Okay so this is the first site I've ever encountered gone down from DoS attack...
    Anyone know when it would come back up?
    Do they have to repair it or something?

    Apparently they are a european team, but this doesnt mean that they need to have their website hosted in europe...

    ugh. I've been wondering what the hell is going on.
    Please tell me there's no way this is a 'strike against piracy' type thing?
    Please. [​IMG]

    Nope. If someone is DoS-ing their website, it's most likely a competitor ...

    I think that might actually be why the server is china.
    Those kinds of laws don't tend to apply in foreign nations but i'm not sure what the rules are for china.
