Dear All,

Between the hours of 7:20am-9:20am GMT the IRC server was client flooded.. Network services (Operserv) was able to handle most of the clients thus keeping things fairly under control.

Shown below is a log of what happened... My interpretation is that the user joo was in the channel before this happened and the user Guest****** was the attacker..

[07:20:55] ‹ joo › you're a fucking dumbass

[07:29:36] ‹ joo › in prison
[07:29:39] ‹ joo › up the ass
[07:29:39] ‹ joo › hahaha
[07:29:49] ::: Quit: (joo) (joo@polarhome-99ABEA9.range81-153.btcentralplus.com) (Quit: 62.215.60.42 62.215.60.42)
[07:33:46] ::: Part: (Guest1863) (Never@ED5F075.8D87DB88.19170FD.IP)


Need I remind users that this kind of behavior is not tolerated and ultimately, polarhome systems cannot handle abuse.

I don't understand why would someone attack PH IRC server, I mean there are not more than 15 users connected.

From the conversation it may seems that Guest1863 is the attacker and he seems to use a proxy or something. Anybody seacrhed out 62.215.60.42?

Man sometimes I feel bad that I cannot kick some people really hard, world is not fair.

No point in trying to ban his ip and stuff, that's probably a bnc/proxie'd host.

This isn't unusual though, this is in no way different than people who upload(ed) spam scripts or exploited the polarhome machines with xyz bugs..

anyway, you handled it well chaz, but for the future - i suggest something like a maxclients-per-ip or something of that sort, a good limit would be 3 per ip, with exception to trusted masks.

If you already have that implemented, ignore the above statement :)

It is already implemented which was why there was never more than 3 connected before Operserv removed them. I will however look at lengthening the "ban time" for Session Exceptions and also install the bopm open source proxy server.

It angers me though that some people are like that.

BTW, for those who dont know ... Denis is planning on linking another Polarhome IRC server to the solaris one so we will start to offer redundancy.. (I'll possibly get Z to forward 6668 to denis' ircd)..

Something else, now that we discussed it maybe you should remove the log, it is not very... polite! :-)
