For the past 20 minutes someone has been trying to run a DDoS attack on Masto.host host servers.
The traffic is being syphoned to avoid a full disruption of service. Meaning that each connection needs to be filtered before reaching the server. So, it is possible that some users may experiencing some connection delays.
Sorry about that. I will let you know if I have more information.
@jwildeboer Glad to know, it depends on several factors and for some people they wont even notice what is going on. OVH DDoS protection has been pretty solid on the small number of time I have been attacked.
@Ertain Thanks, I am paying extra by using OVH datacenters and one of the reasons is that they offer good DDoS protection, at least in the past they have mitigated any attacks pretty efficiently . So, currently I am just here looking at logs and monitoring the evolution :)
@sajith No problem. It depends on multiple factors. Some people won't even notice it. But glad you were not affected.
@mastohost no problem. All back to normal now. It lasted about 25mins in total with the site going down and coming back online
@maique yep, it had gone done now it's slowly coming back, not so back as before up until now. Sorry :|
@maique Not much I can do, the DDoS protection is doing its thing, I just seat here a look at logs and monitoring.
The original server operated by the Mastodon gGmbH non-profit
