DDOS attack on our server over night

Our server provider was hit with a DDOS attack over night and had effectively gone offline. The attack was not aimed specifically at Phoenix but rather at service providers across the internet. More info about the mass DDOS here: http://www.kansascity.com/2010/10/06/2283745/anonymous-cyber-protest-group.html

Things effected by this outage in your viewer will be client tag colors and a message stating “This viewer was not made by Phoenix…“. You can safely ignore that message. We have restarted our server now and it seems to be stable again. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Good that it wasnt specifically aimed on Phoenix but rather to the Service Provider. We did speculate already that Pdox and co heck out new plans because they are pissed.

    Good to hear that everything is ok now. 🙂
