Question

Just wondering what this was, but I tried to open the website and got a box with MyBB  server error. What was this and do we need to worry about it?

Was it just too many users at one time? Not had this issue before.

Turns out that it was a bot attack...our host was able to ID the IP address and block it from loading up our server connections.

 

Everything should be good now.

 Wow! Thanks for that info. Glad the host was able to be on it right away before any damage was done.

For the most part...attacks like these are designed to swamp a site and make it unavailable to other real users.  DoS or Denial of Service attacks are fairly common in the internet world.  Low risk but pesky as hell!  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack

 

It's rough being a webmaster these days...if you don't have the resources that Facebook or Google has!   :cool:

Still happening 95% of the time, sent you an email rocket. Cant create a new post or reply as a new field but figured out how to use the already posted message to get the post up so you can see it.

Yeah, we still have some pesky bot crawlers lingering around!  Our host said it may be a little time until the all get banned from the server but we should be back to normal soon!
