PLUG: DoS Attack
Plug.org experienced a brief DoS attack Wednesday night. The source of the attack originated from Korea. It was a simple application port exhaustion attack against port 80 (http/Apache). Due to some great efforts by local #plug'ites the attacker was slowed long enough to get a block in place. We will remain vigilant.
As a side note, this delayed getting meeting details out tonight. We are still on for next Wednesday at 7:30pm. Details to follow very soon. The meeting will be a little different this time, so don't expect to show up at the usual place.
