Yes, me too.. Not quite sure why though. All I can think is that I uploaded a 1.5mb file with a heap of IP's of undesirable countries. It may have taken a minute or two to update.

I thought I had gone crazy when I saw something about parallels.

Looks like it's okay again now.

Cheers

No problems accessing the site from rabbit flats. I saw the spam message earlier and thought I was seeing things.

Just bit if a run down from what went on last night.

We had our first piece of spam. originate from Indonesia. It appears that the pest had to sign up for an account (user nasiasin), and manually post the spam. It wasn't inserted via a script. The advertising was for a company that sold DIY kitchens in the UK.

I've sent them a dirty email regarding using these undesirable countries services, and how it destroys business creditability.

I have banned an number of countries from accessing the site.

Australian websites such as these are constantly under attack from places such as Turkey, Palestine and Indonesia.

In Palestine alone, Hamas report there are over 24,000 hackers who will try to infiltrate western websites.

Indonesia is not far behind. Much of the hacking is done for money (for funding terrorism or otherwise). Online stores are a favourite for trying to grab credit card details from. It is wise to ban access from other countries and host these websites in Australia if you run one of these.

In Australia we have a government who is building a national broad band network to stop us from falling behind in the ever growing E-commerce sector. The problem is that we have countries who insist on casing havoc.

These people, who also mount some attacks on Australia business via Indonesian government computers are really no less destroying Australian business, and thus the Australian economy at the same time. Yet, we proceed with the NBN, and don't give a rats about these bastards.

Infact apparently according to Dfat "The relationship between Australia and Indonesia has never been stronger. Australia and Indonesia are close neighbours with a highly productive relationship that encompasses political, security, commercial, environmental, cultural and people-to-people links. The strength of the relationship can be seen in the depth and breadth of high level exchanges between leaders, ministers and prominent people of both countries." - www.dfat.gov.au/geo/indonesia/indonesia_brief.html

Wake up Australia! we'd rather sook them up than look after Australia's interests.

That's interesting Mike. When Footygoss was under attack Grassy thought it was coming from the people running WAFL Online to sabotage us. Hahaha

Where is Grassy?

The spam attack last night was from Indonesia... I checked the IP address.

WAFL Online was the WAFC's, wasn't it?
