You could also make him an offer he can't refuse...7000 carrots!



ship the guy a crate of 7K carrots?..... I actually think I would like to see that.   Grin

Yes as would I. Hopefully he would be a sport and take a picture of himself standing next to the crate full of carrots. Then he can go brag to his comrades that he is rich in carrots.

It would be funny if someone got a nigerian scam artist to do that.

Hi,

Not totally down. It's still up if you try enough, but it's not optimal. We are tweaking ddos filters to match the new attack pattern.


Thanks,
Mark

Connect over https instead of http, and you're fine.

Safer to use HTTPs anyway.

Hi, how can I reach MTgox admin? I was trying to send him message, but did not get reply. I am having problems with not deposited funding via LR - probably due to DDOS attack.

Does anybody help?

Looks like MtGox.com is down.

Is it under DDOS or whatever?
Does anybody have any info on it?

Edit: Is working now.

I think at least until we have multiple large stock markets mtgox needs to try to be distributed too just as BTC maybe Fortigate with load balancers .. cloud data centers across the globe ... One thing people love about BTC is that it is (DISTRIBUTED) even more than being anonymous .. and the DDoS/hacks we seen in mtgox is such a proof along with the governments games with their currencies.

The closest I can think of for a URL to be distributed is cloud hosting with load balances and different data center across the globe.

It doesn't help.
Russian criminals have some of the biggest botnets (multiple gbit/s downlink) that can even bring down sites like Twitter & Facebook at the same time.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/169809/twitter_ddos_attack_politically_motivated_says_report.html

Note that Facebook used some of the highest bandwidth servers in the world during the attack.
It still doesn't help even with attack patterning.

A site such as Mt. Gox has no chance to survive even if an attack with just a fraction of that, or 5-10k connections TCP flood it.

Most small to medium sized companies will pay protection money to stop the attacks coming because they lose more in business daily than they would pay the attacker.

The problem is that this opens you up for frequent extortion because you already paid once.
I don't think Mark considered the option of paying $7000 as requested earlier.
