another outage, likely unrelated

| | Comments (0)
So after the outgoing attack was squashed, there was a massive incoming attack.   The target of that attack has now been blackholed.   

I don't know if the two are related.   The outgoing attack was a compromised host;  I know the person and expect an incident report sometime tomorrow.    But the incoming attack, was it a response?  I don't know.   It was directed at a different IP, so probably not.

note how it seems that just as I had the outgoing attack whipped, I got hit by the incoming attack.     The incoming attack was made more difficult to deal with by the fact that I don't, at the moment, have an out of band link.  This is... bad, as it made getting in to figure out what happened really hard.
