Hi,

We've put mtgox back online, this time through a level7 firewall (application level firewall, basically it filters bad requests and ddos at application level, which means mtgox should stay online more easily).

Anyway now is the time for some russian guys to attack again, so we can see if it works Smiley


If my dear russian friend who asked me $5000 via LR by email (then $7000, then more, but oh well) read me, let me say this to you:

If we can live through this, it means we'll have enough anti-ddos protections (for now).

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

http won't load but https pulls up just fine.

It's probably because ddos is still ongoing and they are flooding port 80.

Nope, proxy misconfiguration from the ISP I think. Trying to get it sorted out.
