Not quite a DDOS but-



  • Anyone got idea's what this is?   Second time it has happened in six months.  Up to 12 queries a second before I decided to just turn the webpages off for the weekend.  Last time it withered out after two days of me taking it down (also over the weekend)

  • @cmb:

    Looks like referer spam.

    Thanks!  Interesting that it suddenly appears so quick from so many different sources… Then it kinda rolls off after a couple of days and I won't see but one or two a week if things follow suit the same way as last time.

    Firewall is nowhere close to being saturated but Id like to make sure my webserver isn't infected.
