Though the DDoS attacks have caused us little downtime, we wanted to share with the bitcoin community and our many players that we have experienced many intermittent DDoS attacks over the last six weeks.  Many are preceded or followed by extortion demands such as the following.  We wanted to share our story because perhaps there are many similarities that we can find that may lead to who or what groups are performing these attacks.  At no point were our accounts or security in jeopardy.  Following are some of the messages.  We appreciate your responses and thank you.

Don't pay it and talk to your host about some anti-ddos measures.

Never pay a ransom, and see about cloud flare.

Thank you for the feedback.  We handled the attacks internally with our staff very quickly and never had a thought of paying any ransom demands.  We wanted to share this with the community because we see other websites devastated by similar attacks and perhaps with our collective efforts we can eliminate them.

I would suggest looking into Prolexic or hardware-based DDOS protection. Especially if they use a UDP DDOS attack.

Agreed with the first part, please don't use CloudFlare. All the BTC-related sites are starting to use it, and it's beginning to look like a single point of failure -- a bad thing for a decentralized currency.

A DDOS attack however exploits a very well known vector, which has been vulnerable for years, and is known by many people.

And is also not considered a 0 day exploit, which is what really makes it funny.

I not understand why they ever try this.  Do anyone every pay these ass?  And they even attack other small website that get maybe 3 BTC/month profit and ask for 50 BTC ransom.  Just stupid desperate script kiddie who rent botnet or pay DDOS service.  If he own botnet, why he would stop?

Maybe all casino owner should get together and put ransom for the attacker.  Go to hackforums and put 45BTC bounty for info about real identity of this asshole.  The real owners of botnets may give you the user for enough money, thay are greedy asshole too.
