Great work on resolving the problem and defending subsequent DDoS attempts Tux.  This whole event has made me feel a bit more secure with the valuation of BTC.  For such an extensive (multi-day) attack shutting down the largest exchange, the price has barely been affected.  I was expecting a price dump into the $2.00-2.25 range as a result of people getting scared.

All this DDoS did was allow more time for deposits/wires to be added/cleared. That money is going to Gox for 1 reason only: to buy. So you have several days of pent up demand pushing prices higher.

Back to $3.50 already. I wonder what happened to that guy who sold all his BTC at $3.50.

Congratulations from me as well. Also, I am proud of our community that we didn't let those incidents affect our faith in Bitcoin. Of course, these attacks were not aimed at the Bitcoin network itself (which is not easy to be attacked), only the websites related to it; nevertheless, some people might have lost faith for a while.

I would love to find out who organised this attack. I wonder would he be equally courageous face to face.

I suppose there was more greed than fear in the face of those ddoses i.e. something along one of the following lines:

-- aha, I now have some time to transfer some money to mtgox before we hit 5$
-- aha, maybe everyone get scared and stop mining and I'll be able to mine a few more bitcoins while difficulty is still lower than 1 million.

Heya,

Attacker is back, and has a new email address (it starts with fuuuuckyouuuuumtgox). I think he's not happy.

Anyway we'll try tweaking the ddos protections to avoid blocking legit traffic, it's going to take a bit more time.

Wow this attacker is such a loser!

Is there any particular pattern to this attack? Are the majority of IPs from a specific country (I heard Vietnam being mentioned earlier)? Is there any way to directly counter attack his botnet or whatever means he is using to launch this attack? Anything you can do beyond just soak up the bandwidth bitch slap?

You'd think he'd of noticed that his attacks have caused a sort of rally behind MtGox, which, I take it, is not what he wants.

The guy who mailed me requests to pay him $7000 (yep, got $2000 more because I reported him) first told me he wants rates down, then told me he needs the money.

This is ridiculous. It's really unfortunate that this guy doesn't get economics as well as DDoSing.

You should tell him that you've taken his request to the Ministry of Bitcoin Exchanges and the Ministry agrees that rates should come down , and, furthermore, the Ministry has decided that the exchange rate will be adjusted so that 1BTC will always equal 1USD forever and henceforth.

So wait, are you telling me that the 0,65% is so much for him that he actually needed to DDoS you... ?
Or was it about the BTC/USD rate ?

In soviet russia.... money taxes you it seems.
