Title: DEEPBIT problem?
Post by: X68N on July 07, 2011, 02:53:50 PM
Hello,
before 2,5h i stopped mining in Deepbit, to watch porn xD, came back after 2,5h and now it doesnt work anymore. is there again a shitty DDOS or what?

i switched now to slushs until it works again...

Damn switched to slushs, now after 30min this pool gets DDOSed - but now Deepbit works again.
it seems that it is only one Botnet-asshole, which could only DDOS one Pool at the same time...

The difficulty increased today, so i am out i think.
I will try until tomorrow and see how much my rate sinks (yesterday 0,2 BTC/24h)

I keep on eye on which pools are getting attacked, and just switch to whichever pool is up at the time. For example, today, I noticed DeepBit was down again, but BTCGuild had come back up. So I switched over to BTCGuild. Once BTCGuild gets attacked again, I'll move back to DeepBit or whichever other pool is up at the time.

Annoying as fuck to be sure, but they can't attack all the pools all the time. Just look around to find a functional pool.
