Site crapping out today-

Post by jj » Tue Sep 29, 2015 2:47 pm

Folks, we've had a weird deal come up with a DDOS attack directed at UMASSHoops.com today. It ended up crashing the site and we shut it down to try to stabilize the server again. No guarantee that this won't pop up again, but we're keeping an eye on it.

Thanks,

jj

Thanks for getting it back up and running guys. I imagine that wasn't fun.

Not really. But it's got to be a script kiddie that's a Miami fan. I'm sure that sounds paranoid, but I can think of no other reason that someone would target this site.

I didn't see any of that. And you were able to post again yesterday, so maybe it was just temporary.

Please contact me if this problem persists.
