    The reason for the downtime and now the "secured connection" messages, and various issues that have been going on along with that is because FST has been under a massive DDOS attack for the last 2 weeks. We are working on things trying our best to get them under control, however the attacks have been extremely large.

    Note that ddos protection is extremely expensive, thus we are trying our best to stay within our means so that the site doesn't lose a ton of money, however we will try our best to find the best solution even if we have to reach deeper into our pockets.

    Please bare with us

    Thank you
    Brian

    Would be nothing more than speculation at this point. There are some theories but nothing that we know for sure so not much point in getting into this. Weve checked into a couple things but havent found much of anything. For now unless whos responsible comes forward there isnt much to say about this...

    A DDOS attack almost never originates from the equipment from the one behind it.

    It's mostly a incredible amount of zombie-machines that have been infected that conduct the 'attack'. If it's a smart guy you'll never find him.

    Happens to torrent-trackers all the time. Could be an unhappy (banned) member or another jealous invite-board or just some script-kiddie that is bored and wants some action.

    Hope it ends soon.
    Good luck to the admins in these times of crysis.

    Yes, how they basically work is a virus is planted on hundreds, or thousands of pcs and the attacker can pretty much send all those pcs to a server to overload it.
