[OC]ModShop has been a target of a Distributed Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). Apparently some user’s PCs have been compromised with a trojan virus, which is targeting certain files on OCModShop in an attempt to prevent them from being served.
The files infected are:
Most people probably don’t know they are part of this attack, and it is probably a lone individual who wrote the virus targeting us. I have already contacted the FBI about this issue, and they are working on tracking down who wrote this virus and bringing them to justice.
In the meantime I must protect the site. I have put measures in place to help protect the server
, and may ban any IPs that attack the server
… so if you get a “you are not allowed to use this website” message then you may have a trojan installed and are unknowingly attacking the site.
