I expect this may take a little longer than last time. This is just down to checking everything is fine before we put it all back up and taking the time to add extra security measures. The actual download/upload of data should now be much faster, since a lot of the files will already be stored on the local machine that is being used for this.

Do you think that these DDoS attacks are targeted directly at Clonwercraft or is it just bad luck that we got mounted twice? Also, isn't there a way to trace the hackers, because hacking/DDoSing is totally illegal. There can only be one Clownercraft! All other servers suck!

It was down the entirety of my last "vacation", and now it looks like it's going to happen again. My sadness knows no bounds. :cry:

I feel I need to clear things up a bit:

The server itself is not BEING DDoS ATTACKED.
The server has been compromised and was actually being used to attack OTHER people. We are protected against people attacking our server with DoS or DDoS. It's not a case of "People need to stop attacking us". The infiltration is likely just some malware, which we need to find and remove before we can open again. However, unless we remove this the issue will persist and this will keep happening. Please ask questions rather than just making assumptions about what is happening.

Unfortunately, this time of year is always busy for me with other commitments, and I haven't had time to go through things thoroughly yet. As of yet, I have no ETA for when we will get the server back up.

I doubt it was targeted, whoever managed to infect our system is just in it to attack others, and it's nearly impossible to trace (as are DDoS attacks to the server).
