Sustained DDOS Attacks on MangaUpdates
All,

MangaUpdates has been battling sustained distributed denial of service attacks. We first became aware of the attacks within the last week and have been battling them since. While we will attempt to keep the site up as much as we can, you may experience delays or site outages as a result.

The attack is being orchestrated by about 200k IPs. They appear to be coming from common locations such as AT&T and Globe Telecom source endpoints. The attacks themselves are not sophisticated, but the attacker is actively changing their tactics as we respond. I'm not sure who would be that motivated, but people are weird.

If your IP was banned, please send us an email or PM and we will unban your IP.

Thank you,

Staff
