Temporary Website Problems

Postby mike » Wed Jan 04, 2006 10:41 pm

On January 4 our website hosting provider experienced a serious DOS attack. A "denial of service" attack is one in which an attacker uses malicious code installed on various computers to attack a single target. This attack affected many thousands of websites that use the services of our hosting provider, including ours.

During this time our Website, Email and other Services may appear to have been unavailable or intermittently available. This was a very complex attack and took all our hosting provider's resources to divert and filter.

We extend our apologies for any inconvenience as a result of this situation, and would like to note that our web store was unaffected during this period. Our web store is available at:

http://store.esellerate.net/s.aspx?s=ST ... 640&PT=F4t

Our main site is now fully functional.

Kind Regards,

The 2BrightSparks Team
