I would not normally post such a thing, except that I have been watching and monitoring this for several weeks now.
I know this to be a legitimate attack based on the damaged ego of one individual.
This attack has brought a community, I am close to, down; BakaBT
There has been a whole list of B.S and demand made by a singularly band individual at this community, and this individual has followed through.
a request and information has gone out here:http://storiesofthenewage.blogspot.com/2010/05/hello-bakabt-community-and-people-of.html
This may seem irrelevant to Donationcoder and our great community here and BakaBT is a Bittorrent sharing site, but a legitimate one, if not one of the very few legitimate!!!
The big worry I have is two fold:
1.) The full impact of the DDoS attack on BakaBT
2.) the what if factor.
I say "What if" in a manner of; What if this were to happen here!!!
I am sure I am going to rile some folks on this, but it is upsetting me so much that I had to post.
As usual I am certain that I am setting myself up for the fall, but I have to implore on the good nature of Donationcoder community again.
help if you can
Thanks in advance
