Now that sucks. Your server local, co-lo or remote hosted?
I noticed it earlier when I was trying to pull up some of the flavor notes.
We get em at work all the time but we’ve got a honking pipe and VIP balanced border managers so while we’ll get slow downs we generally don’t get buried.
Most of the time when we bother to dig into it the origination IPS are all over the place which means the attack is one of these remote bot trojans that end user morons get on their machines from blindly clicking on download links anybody with half a clue knows to steer clear of.
Same kinda bot shit that you get most of your random useless spam from. Annoying, and yeah, the source probably close to what SthrnMixer stated above, only he’s 17 and lives someplace in what used to be the Soviet Union, and does this for fun when he’s not busy writing bogus headlines for a fake news site.
