    DiscountASP DDOS attack

    http://daspstatus.com

    Does anyone have any inside information on what's happening with DiscountASP? Our website, store and e-mail have been down since yesterday evening.

    Thanks,
    Kathy

    Wow. Someone has it in for them it seems. From what has been posted on the page looks like your just going to have to play it by ear. Obviously they're trying to get everything back to normal :S

    I think you're right -- they must have been deliberately targeted. I haven't seen anything about other DDoS attacks today. DiscountASP has been great -- we've been with them for a year. Their setup sounds as though they had taken more than reasonable precautions against this happening, too...

    they must have been deliberately targeted.
    That seems pretty clear to me. It's really sad when some rogues attack and (even though it's not really their fault) tarnish the reputation of a company otherwise renowned for its stable quality service.

    DDOS Mitigated

    Full Disclosure: I do work for DiscountASP.NET. We were under a massive DDOS attack off and on for 2 days. It is unclear who the target of the attack is. Typical DDOS attacks are targetted toward a hosting provider's customer.

    We did post in our community forum (http://community.discountasp.net) about what happened. To mitigate the attack, we did use an enteprise-class DDOS mitigation service, Prolexic, who is also used by many fortune 500 companies, major ISPs, news sites, and even by other countries. Now our hosting platform is strengthened even more.

    Did DiscountASP happen to host campidiot.com up until a few days ago? If so, I think I have an idea what it was about.
