    Jag sites?

    Im interested to know if clients are seeing intermitent outages on our sites jaguarpc.com and hostgui.com ? If so, is there any other sites or servers you have problems with as well?

    I'm asking becuase at times I seem to have trouble reaching port80 (http) on certain sites recently although the server and services are fine.

    My site has been gone out 3 days in a row as well as jag at the same time. Other sites on your servers are up though. I am on NS17 by the way.

    Also the internet has been having problems all over US today. Many have been unable to connect to the internet or it has been going extremely slow. I am on a 1meg dsl line and it was going at 7k earlier today.

    Hi everyone,

    It looks to be that we had some SYN attacks on port 80 on a few servers, which caused the web server to be unresponsive on and off today. We have tracked and blocked the IP classes of the sources of the attacks and have alerted our upstream provider, whom I believe blocked the IP range of the attackers on the router level too. We have already alerted the providers and upstream providers as well and provided them with logs. We were attacked by multiple sources. It doesn't appear at this time that JaguarPC or it's network were the specific target and a lot of IP's we house on our systems were hit, so it doesn't appear that we or any of our sites were a target at this time. We have taken some measures already and are taking further measures to prevent this sort of thing and take action as fast as possible if it happens again. A lot of people didn't notice the attack, but us and our monitoring tools alerted us and we took action to stop it. We will be on high alert watching for any further attempts and are ready to take immediate action. Thank you.

    Well I hope that fixes whatever was the problem. I couldn't reach Jag or my sites for several hours.

    Hi, I've rebooted NS15 and NS17 a few minutes ago. They were back up, but I just rebooted NS17 again, due to it being attacked, again. I had to do this for certain features to be able to block the attacks. Sorry for the issues this caused, but I'm hoping this solves the problem, or otherwise port 80 will continue to be attacked.

    Hello,

    There is no one site that's being attacked. What happens, is the attacks flood port 80, and tie it up for a few minutes. It literally makes hundreds of connections to port 80 (not the web server, just the port) on about 200 IP's at once and jst slams it. These attacking IP's are coming from leased and DSL lines, as well as other networks. There's no one source and there's not any one target. This has happened on multiple servers, and each server has bout 200 IP's hit at once. This is also not exclusive to our network either, other's are experiencing the same thing. If I had any pre-warnings or information, I'd use it to prevent this, but we are doing all we can and I'm coming up with more and more solutions. You'll notice that when it happens (if it does again, let's hope not!), that you can't access a web ite, due to it running on port 80, but you can access it via https, which is for SSL and runs on port 443. So the web server itself isn't the issue, it's just port 80.. which that alone gives me ideas and solutions.

    I don't think it has anything to do with Palversa or know why it would.

    Interestingly enough, I know of other sites not located by Jag that are having problems. However, it seems to be strictly related to DNS. These sites can still be accessed by IP. All of these domains use Network Solutions as the registrar
