Either slush fidgeting with the pool, AWS is having issues or pool is under attack.
Connections are very intermitent on port 3301 resulting in lots of stales when connection resumes .... I had port 3333 of the main stratum url as first backup but that on most of my rigs is now being reported as Dead ..... ! Nothing on FB yet either from slush ...

I'm manually pointing my miners elsewhere until this gets hashed out.

It would be nice to hear something from "our captain" on the FB page...

Looks like its settled down now .... but yeah, would be nice to hear what (if any) the issue was. Really strange that as slush has always been a steady pool connection-wise.

The Facebook page has indicated that it was a DDoS attack (as we guessed), with a second wave four hours ago.

My miners saw a few more hiccups last night and early this morning. At the moment the pool appears dead again, so we're not out of this yet.

I hate DDoSers. They should take their talents and apply them to constructive ways to make money instead of lame ass shake downs.

Also, you would think that if you wanted to hold a pool for ransom, you'd do it earlier in the no fee promotion, not on the last day.

So in addition to being lazy and evil, they're also stupid.

Could be a fight against "classic nodes?"

Played with: USB RedFury - BlackArrows Prospero X1/X3 - Butterfly Monarch- Spondoolies SP20E - Avalon 6 - Antminer U3/S3/S3+/C1/S5/S7 Batches 3-7-8 - Sfards SF100 - Innosilicon A2 Terminator - Alcheminer 96/256 - KNC Titan - Etherum Rigs

Strange this ... had one of my miners with very old firmware kicked off port 3301 about an hour ago and it failed to get onto the backup port 3333 but its been hashing away nicely to .... I don't know where as there are no other pools but it's been showing a reduced hashrate for that time!

So yeah, seems the DDoS attack is still alive and kicking. Damn, we were on some good luck streak prior to these shenanigans.

BIP101 voting disabled because of DDoS attack 6 days, 21 hours
We were forced to close voting ports 3301 for supporting BIP101 proposal.

Please, use the regular ports 3333 for now. We'll keep you updated.

Interesting. So the attack is focused on the BIP101 voting port?

I guess that means this is a politically motivated attack, not the usual greed. That's even more unsettling.

This whole XT/Core fight has gotten out of hand...

Ridiculous! Not that BIP101/XT had any chance (in the current convoluted debate) over the swift sand that is BIP100, but that was not enough for the pig-headed majority.
This just brings to the fore the real need for a code fork. I am aware the core "team" may not all agree with the majority that are the DDoS instigators (and that won't be the first time they don't agree with the majority in the bitcoin community), but this has taken it too far.

To the DDoS organizator:

What a puerile way to express yourself.

Instead of adding hashrate to your selected option (which is obviously non-BIP101), you instead attack the only possible way to vote, the only bastion of truth.

Making everyone mine "core" instead of letting people vote and express themselves, letting the majority decide, you've just let everyone down and made an argument in favor of tyranny, the tyranny of a few individuals that think a tightly closed elite must decide the future of the cryptocurrency.

You sir/madam are promoting tyranny and elitism, not the real values of anarchy i think.

You have made the world a little bit worse by letting the "powers that be" control our future, instead of letting us all measure ourselves in a universal and direct vote.

One of the miners will not stay connected to the pool.  Any ideas?

Yes there is also massive attack on XT nodes on a way. My 100/100 Mbit connection was taken down for days... But stopped after I took XT offline... It will be back online as soon as I don't need internet any more. I do have a G4 but it is caped so I do need classical internet for large downloads... But what I find interesting is that attacker who is clearly from bitcoin space doesn't understand how we think...

The attack could also be BIP-101 proponent trying to win sympathy for BIP-101.

These attacks are criminal terrorism and go far beyond attack on the XT nodes, with significant collateral damage. My ISP was taken down for over one hour several times yesterday due to a DDOS attack that exceeded their access bandwidth. Tech support had their upstream provider block my IP address.  Then to restore my service they gave me a new IP address.  Within an hour the DDOS attack returned at the new IP address.  They then switched off my Internet service overnight until we could discuss what to do.  No more XT node for me.

In theory, you can locate what ISP provides the connection to the computers the attach originates from and email them. ISPs are obligated to have a way to contact them about abuse. Not sure if they can do much to prevent their traffic services used for DDoS attacks though.

... used for DDoS attacks

DDoS comes from Distributed Denial Of Service, which means there are thousands of IPs from all over the world performing the attack.
Good luch in just taking the time to list them and find their ISPs

I'm fully aware of that. There's possibly an entire army of infected computers that was after slush. That's why I said that going after IPs and contacting ISPs is only a possibility in theory. Very time consuming, indirect and most definitely ineffective in most cases.
