On time this month, only four hours after data collection has ended!
The theme of this month’s post is Back to Basics, ou, si vous préférez, La Rentrée. The term has started and the oddities of summer seem to be over. 🙂
This week two of my favorite blogs, Mickey Chandler’s Spamtacular and Brian Krebs’ KrebsOnSecurity, have posted unusually informative and thoughtful articles about two spam-related DDoS attacks. One occured three years ago; the other within the past week.
For those who prefer to read comments and kudos AFTER reading the original articles, here are direct links:
The Mainsleaze Blog has moved to yet another new server, this one running CentOS 7. Everything appears to be working properly, including the pages and links that were broken on the first server. Please review the site, attempt to post comments, etc. If nothing breaks for the next 48 hours, I will declare victory and shut down the old server for good. 🙂
Thank you, everybody, for your patience!
The Mainsleaze blog moved to a new server over the weekend. A number of odd bugs ensured. A day’s research and efforts to fix the problems exposed some serious underlying bugs in the most recent version of the underlying operating system on the server. We reverted to the old server til we can get the new server properly debugged or upgrade to a less buggy OS.
Sorry for the delays! 🙂
Looking forward to meeting y’all! Atro
