Is WickedFire Down?

Discussion in 'Outages' started by kcontent, Apr 2, 2011.

    Hey, has anyone else tried to open www.wickedfire.com today? I haven't been able to open the site all day, curious if the problem is with the site or with my connection.

    Thanks all.

    I just checked it again and it's down again. I suppose we'll just have to wait for it to stabilize again.

    Looks like it's probably a DDoS attack, considering it has 5,609 "guests" online right now. They probably banned some kid who has access to a botnet and now he's lashing out.

    Unfortunately, it's fairly common these days. We ended up getting DDoS mitigation hardware for this site that stops it before it even reaches our switch (much less servers).

    I noticed that! I saw like 3,000 guests on Shooting the Shit and was like "wtf?" I knew that had to have something to do with it. Thanks for explaining! It's seriously pissing me off ... I have a couple clients waiting on work (which is finished) and no way to contact them.

    yeh, this is getting obnoxious. I'm also trying to get work done. I'd like to castrate the douche behind this attack, if in fact that's what's going on over there.

    Sadly, the person wasting their time messing with Wickedfire could be using that time to make more money.
