so Drew did they just give up and go home or did you help them see the light

do we now have new and improved defense stuff to avoid future problems
They just gave up.  They don't want to waste THEIR precious resources trying to steal ours. 

Hopefully they'll remember this was a hard nut to crack and not come back.  There really is no defense against an attack like that- that I know of anyway. 

The way the server is built is to offer resources to web traffic as needed- it "spawns" workers to do the job, and those workers have children workers. A worker does something when a user does something- i.e."clicks" on something or enters the page... It scales up and down depending on traffic or demand.  When it gets hammered to a point it has to start launching/spawning multiple new workers it becomes a very suspicious server, and instead starts limiting workers available- slowing things down for users.  Purposely.  And that's what you guys saw.

The punch line for them (and this is for tech guys more or less) the server runs apache and mpm in an php-fpm environment- meaning if they consume the resources of the server they just just down the virtual box they're unknowingly entering, and destroy their doorway they've spent time and energy making- which is enough time for me to be alerted. The environment here is not running on the bones of the server, so to speak, it's running in a virtual environment created by the server... if a person crushes the servers resources it crushes the virtual environment without ever hitting the server- and when the server comes back it just creates a new one. 

Now if "they" were to get into the database they could hurt us and hurt us bad- but there is nothing in the db that should interest them and hitting the db gains them nothing other than the thrill of destroying something.  These guys were after resources- as in processing power, as most of them are- they were just doing it with a might ive not seen before here...

Want to contact CIA from Russia? Agency points to darknet

https://apnews.com/article/russia-ukraine-putin-business-europe-media-7f6a05c4306abe4a99b360e14366487e

WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA says Russians disaffected by Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine may be trying to get in touch with U.S. intelligence — and it wants them to go to the darknet.

The agency on Monday began a new push to promote its presence on a part of the internet accessible only through specialized tools that provide more anonymity. The CIA has a darknet site that has the same features as its regular homepage but accessible only through the Tor internet browser, which has encryption features not available on most regular browsers.

Instructions in English and Russian on how to access the darknet site appeared Monday on the CIA’s social media channels. The agency hopes Russians living abroad can share the instructions with contacts inside the country.

How do we do the same about Pelosi and Brandon and pretty much the rest of D.C.?

When I open my chromebook it takes a moment to connect to the wifi, and when it did it redirected me from here to some executive website that I'd never heard of.

Wait.. . Whu?


That shouldn't happen under any circumstances... that makes me wonder if I was just being misdirected by the cybercurrecy guys.... 

Can you recall what the website was?

Yeah, posted it right before you did. 

Again, SHRM Executive Network is what it's called in my history. I don't want to go back to it to get the link.
