    On Thursday, December 02, 2010 at around 9:30 EST iBotModz was offline until about 12:30 AM EST the following morning (3 hours).
    I just wanted to fill everyone in on what happened, Several weeks ago one of the main routers was changed that my server in connected to but it seems that they did not install proper DDOS migration hardware, meaning for the past few weeks the server was vulnerable to DDOS attacks it just so happens that yesterday one of the sites on my server got hit (Not iBotModz). After the attack was Null Routed proper DDOS migration hardware has been installed to stop further attacks.
    So in the end im somewhat happy that it was only a small attack to bring this to my attention so that it could be fixed.

    Tom, fattwam

    The site has a life of it's own peaches. If you attempt to kill it, it will come for you.
