I have very strong evidence that btcguild.com is somehow related to those DDoS attacks to my pool and deepbit. I'll write later.

...wow

For now pool is down and won't be up today. I'm really sorry for downtime, but today it is more serious than before. However I'm solving it, as usually.

ewwohhhmm, cannot wait to hear. Have you notified tycho?

I had suspicions after the last attack, but didn't want to say anything for risk of a public flaying...

"Very Strong Evidence" != "Somehow related" 

Every decently sized pool, large or small, has been attacked this year. Some of them have been outright attacks, others have been pools unable to cope with the sheer volume.

Proof?

Hiya. Long time lurker first time poster.

I sit in the BTCGuild IRC channel every day for at least 12 hours a day and no-one has said they dis-like large pools or Deepbit.
In fact some of us Deepbit as our pool. Myself included. The only poeple I have seen that "hate" large pools is RS and his crew.

What I have seen is Eleuthria is very fast at banning botnets from using his pool and making it so they can't DDOS his pool.  And from what I've seen his pool is always the last large pool standing when the other 2-3 large ones go down.

I've talked to the btcguild guy on IRC a few times. I'm pretty ( but not totally ) sure he personally would not get involved in DDOS'ing other pools.

It seems far more likely to me that botnets that use his pool have a great interest in keeping the other pools down.

  My gut says this is the more than likely scenario as well. Lets hope so.  I just couldn't picture Eleuth putting himself in real life danger by doing soemthing like that. It just doesn't add up........

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Agree btcguild is not behind this.

So under your logic that means when deepbit and btcguild was getting ddosed it must of been slush that was doing it?

or when guild c and D go down its A's fault.

If Eleuthria is behind the current DDoS attack on Slush's pool, then Slush is for sure behind the current DDoS attack on Eleuthria's pool.

firefox responds differently. all other pools' websites (deepbit,slush,arsbitcoin) are trying to load for minute or longer, then fail. btcguild instantly reports a failure. If it was under ddos it would take about one minute to report failure. From this instant response it looks rather that it was simply taken down.

Not my thread but try again on the website, it was instantly reporting a failure because I had to shut down and power back on the server.

Slush said btcguild was somehow related to the attack, not that Eleuthria himself sanctioned it. I don't believe Eleuthria would personally be involved nor do I believe that slush just made this up. My theory is a clan of botnet herding btcguild users thought they would get more coins by taking out the opposition.  It's a theory based on no evidence at this point.

BTW people solo mine during this outage. If everyone hops onto btcguild they will have a dangerous amount of network power.

We could start bets on what is the "proof" that btcguild might be related. My guess from previous attacks on my pages (unrelated to bitcoin) is that they often came from Hetzner IPs, the same datacenter where BTCGuild is.
So my very simple guess is that a shitload of those computers (Hetzner hosts Provider hosting free PHP pages) may have something like the IOnCannon running.. would look like it is related to BTCGuild..

Better yet, everybody should hop to a small pool.  Everybody jumping to BTC Guild ends up screwing over our regular users.  I've been removing servers from our clusters the last month due to shrinking speeds/profits.  We cannot handle 2+ TH/sec like we used to, because it isn't worth keeping up the hardware at this time.  That's why I'm looking at cancelling signups (private pool) or a major payout structure change:  Get the botnets off and keep our regular users with a stable pool.

So please:  If you mine on Slush, Deepbit, or BTC Guild, set your backup to a SMALL pool.  Not only is it more reliable (the major pool outages are often related), but it avoids putting unexpected heavier load on an already large pool.  And of course it's safer for the network to have the hash split between a larger number of nodes.
