I was wondering about this for a long time. How Linux respond to a DDos attack vs windows. And it is less likely to get offline while having a ddos attack. I'm running a minecraft server soon and they get prone to ddos attack a lot.
To protect your website, you need to be able to block or absorb malicious traffic. Webmasters can talk to their hosting provider about DDoS attack protection. They can also route incoming traffic through a reputable third-party service that provides distributed caching to help filter out malicious traffic reducing the strain on existing web servers.
I am running mail server in exim and using SMTP auth mechanism in that. But i am getting ddos attack from different IP and from that mail are sending. Also i am using rate limit option in Exim configuration. Please suggest how to block the DDOS attack which is coming from different country
The Escapist forums were brought down in a DDoS attack yesterday. Coincidentally when we mentioned the same #GamersGate story yesterday, the traffic to that one comment thread was five times as much as we'd see on a busy weekday. Launching DDoS attacks on sites that even discuss #GamerGate is pretty damn weak.
The servers of the popular CrunchBang Linux distribution have been under a DDoS attack for almost five days and there's no sign that it's going to stop anytime soon. CrunchBang users might have noticed that the repositories and other services have been rather slow or not even working for the past few days.
GitHub is down again for the second time in the span of a month — this time from a Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). To combat, GitHub says it has temporarily disabled service on port 80 while they nvestigate the source of a connection flood.
The DDOS attack that has rendered the popular Linux site Tux Machines virtually unreachable for nearly two weeks, now seems to be affecting sister site TechRights. Roy Schestowitz, publisher of both sites, told FOSS Force that the attack on TechRights began at about one oclock Friday afternoon GMT.
