Slow Forums: PF Under DDOS Attack

    Every page opens in 10-30 seconds. I have 166 ms pings, so it is unlikely that the problem is on my side. Plus, at least once so far I have seen "MySQL server has gone away" error.

    Ditto for the slowness, but getting these errors:

    Currently not only slow but keep getting messages about failing to connect to www.physicsforums.com at all. Also, PF chat has just dropped me and I can't get back in.

    we were attacked this morning/afternoon. the firewall is still catching up, so things might still be a little slow for a bit

    Maybe char can set up a youtube social? We can chat there for a while until PF is fully recovered. And we get to listen to cool music (:

    It takes several minutes to load a page now, if it works at all. I'm also seeing different fonts than usual, and no background color. (It's white instead of the usual blueish gray).

    What's going on?! It began some time around Mar 5, 23:30 pm EST. I was online checking my replies and it became non-responsive.

    We've been hit all day in a DOS attack. Keep the updates coming. Things are running ok for me at the moment.
