I wrote a small incident report about the attack that happened earlier. :mastodon:

I hope it might help other instances and be useful to us next time this happens. I also think it's important to communicate with you about the issues affecting us. :breathe:

Thanks again to @Gargron and @CM_noelle for there help !


@cm_kropot @Gargron @CM_noelle - I lately discovered mass registration of bots as well on my instance, but the just registered and posted no content. Nevertheless I used some SQL to disable/suspend all bots.
I would like to see some setting to have bot accounts needing additional approval or something like that...

@cm_kropot @Gargron @CM_noelle Heh I have about 80 more domains where that came from that I've had to ban.
