BTC guild reports
"UPDATE: As of approximately 1:00 PM (Pacific Time), the attacks resumed.

UPDATE: As of approximately 10:15 AM (Pacific Time), the attacks seemed to have stopped."
Looks like a DDOS attack on a few pools

Are they DDos attacks , or is it all the new miner devices in the hands of beginners trying to get online?

Can you imagine:- 200 new BFL devices every day, all those users trying to set up their *.bat files
 with the wrong input data(like website passwords instead of miner passwords)50 restarts before they ask for help?

Edit:- pool has just gone down

no its a DDoS attack on us

Would it make any difference if we turned our miners Difficulty way up? It must be a big Botnet to take out all these pools.

Something is up. Pool hashing power just dropped in half in the last 10 minutes.


are we under attack becuase of whats happning in america?

What /is/ happening in America? Something new or unusual, or the usual crap? I am slightly interested, since that is where I live, though I freely admit I pay absolutely no attention to the news, the paper, radio or anything else pretty much. I freely admit I'm fairly ignorant, in fact.

Anybody have any idea where these attacks might be coming from, or who is doing it? And why; who would possibly benefit from it. Is it just out of meanness? Does somebody have a real motive, or do they just wanna brag to their friends? How big a botnet would it take to do attacks of this nature?

Sometimes they steal something in the following chaos and it goes unnoticed.
Also its not just about the size of the botnet, its about co-ordination as well,

If everyone in the uk switched on their electric kettle at 7-50 pm instead of 8-00 pm, then the sudden demand would shut down the power grid.(it's expected at 8pm but not before).  It takes 24 hours to restart all the tripped out nuclear power stations.

A fairly large botnet is in the process of being shut down, so the fall of hash rate maybe caused by the botnet computers disconnecting.

Do many people in the UK switch on their electric kettles at 8:00 pm? Smiley

If it helps, mine was well within the bounds of what I consider "normal".

I'm assuming this is just an example of 'British humour', lol.  Because if true, that is VERY odd societal 'behavior' (translation - behaviour).  Grin

No, it's because most people have a cup of tea mid-evening.

National Grid's control room has people sitting watching TV, getting ready for the big power drain to start...
