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.

The traffic filtering is still on but the attack looks to have slowed down and everything should be back to normal.

Please let me know if you are still experiencing any problems.

Thanks and again sorry about any trouble.

@mastohost Great work! I kept getting warning from the monitor, but still worked fine...

@maique I received 101 monitor notifications :) glad you still were able to use

@mastohost !! Hope you keep managing it as good as up till now. You’ll need some sleep in a while 😊

@maique yep, it had gone done now it's slowly coming back, not so back as before up until now. Sorry :|

@mastohost No worries, really. It’s not a life or death situation for anyone, I’m sure.

@maique Not much I can do, the DDoS protection is doing its thing, I just seat here a look at logs and monitoring.

@mastohost At least grab a beer 😊 The protection seems to be working fine.

@maique I don't drink alcohol 😜 but I'm chill. Nothing new
