Warning! Someone is attacking my forum by DDOS.

Post by trieutulong9923 on October 13th 2011, 3:50 am

My forum is http://gabamiencs.forumvi.net/

I detect my forum has 1722 online >>> this number isn't real visitors. I guess someone is attacking my forum. Because my forum isn't large, visitors are maximum about 100 everyday. I hope mother forum can check it to avoid something not good. Thanks

Did you look on the first page of the administration panel to see who exactly were visiting your forum?

Check their Ip-Address.

Probably a lot of people want to check your forums? You never know.

But yes, check their Ip.

When someone wants to attack by DDOS, the tool will uses different IPs to attack server. I think checking their IPs isn't useful. I know my forum, 1722 visitors at same time aren't impossible. Now you can check it on my forum http://gabamiencs.forumvi.net/ . They continue attacking. I can't add captcha for my forum, so I can only report for Mother Forum.

Has anyone new register?
I believe checking their Ip's is a good idea, therefore you're checking if everybody is in one city, country. Etc.

Those are people viewing your forums. They are not attacking your forums. Their viewing it. I believe or suggest to Changes their (Guests) permission. That way you know they can't do anything.

Another question: Has any guest, register?

Smile I don't understand your Another Question: Do you mean How many is guest and Register or else ??? If you attend, Visitors only view forum index or Thong Bao while they can view many Topics >>> So why ??? DDOS or Flood will send a data to server by visit Forum as you see, and they will make overload bandwidth. I can only change some Permissions so that they don't allow to post or make some thing in a topic, Forum and Category.

Has any of those 1722 guest, register?
And I mean I'm sure those are people viewing forums. If they were bots it will display as bots. But won't have any users online. I believe everything is normal.

OK, if you believe it, in this picture, has 3 member ( register ) and 1782 guest. Besides, a person with DDOSSV nick name told me that he would attack my forum by DDOS to revenge me because I banned him in server CS 1.6.

They can't "attack" your forum. It's not possible to hack the forums. Unless they have permission the AC. If they keep on doing it. IP-Ban them. So basically his threading you because you banned him in a game?

All I can say, any telling you there "going to attack" your forums ip ban them.

Just set the permissio9ns for guest not even be able to view the forums.
Make everything for members only, then they can just stay out on the outside of the forum all they want, let em register in they want to be a member.

and what is DDOS ?

Oh and whats your forum link, and as far as bandwidth, this is none of your concern, there is no bandwidth limit on formotion forums as far as i know?
