following last weeks downtime, i assume this is related to keffals.

with it down, eyes will be on places like here as the next target.

put this in cancelled as not sure where it fits better, its an attempt to cancel an entire forum.....

Wow, interesting piece that he wrote.

This bit jumped out at me:

DoS attacks are cheap. Botnet resellers are easy to find. They're easy to use. However, they are not cheap to mitigate. A 10Gbps attack costs less than $100 for a month, but a 10Gbps line costs $750/mo. 10Gbps-capable routers costs thousands. That is already excessive, but attacks frequently top 100Gbps or even 1000Gbps. Few companies can handle this job. Those companies come under intense political scrutiny. Cloudflare is the biggest, and I use them.

Maybe it's just that KF became too expensive to protect given how it's regularly under DDOS attack, and to an extreme extent these last couple weeks.
