    Server attack



    Dear valued members,

    I apologise for the recurrent downtime on Eupedia in the last few days. There was a massive DDoS attack on the server and it took a while to find a solution. I hope it's going to be ok from now on. I am not sure that the attack targeted Eupedia or another site, nor why.

    This is a preventive measure from the server if people access too many pages in a short time. Please let me know if this happens too often.

    A server can't distinguish between 1000 clicks in a minute and 3 or 5 trials? But what amazes me is that the server is not capable to recognize outsider authomatic clicks from registered users... but maybe the case is that I expect too much from programmers...

    I'm a programmer ;)!! Lol. That's ok I'm not offended....I'm actually somewhat talented and i enjoy solving algorithmic problems on sites such as hackerrank, leetcode, and topcoder throughout my spare time.

    Come to think of it Maciamo, do you think the attack is coming from another country? I recently got hacked on my Facebook profile. According to Facebook's security system the hacker was from Egypt. Recently had to change my password on Facebook.

    Is anybody having the same problem also? I'm curious to see if this is a coincidence or not. :/
