100% not any more.
:confused2 I've been trying to get through to webhostingtalk.com and was wondering why I couldn't.
That answers that :)
:confused: maybe another ddos attack??

100% uptime? Where did you hear that?
Yes, a large segment of their network is offline at the moment.
I have 2 boxes there which appear to be live and well...... Maybe the DDOS is only affecting certain subnets?
Hopefully they'll have it fixed soon!

Could be that work virus thing which takes up all bandwidth within a network. Not too such what happens, just heard something like this about a week ago.
Then again, could be anything :/

Due to emergency maintenance www.rackshack.net is inaccessible. However, forum.rackshack.net is accessible.
There is no ETR for www.rackshack.net.

forum.rackshack.net doesn't work either for me. :confused:

Here is info I was able to pull off somewhere
What I know:
Network Outage 03/07/03
Today, we experienced a substantial attack that resulted in a partial outage of our network.
I am unable to provide detailed information of the attack at this time.
The entire Network Team and Network Operations Centers worked very hard to bring this to a resolution.
On behalf of all of us at Everyones Internet and Rackshack I would like thank you for your business and your patience.
The Headsurfer will be updating you later this evening as he receives details from TechieSurfer.
Again, thank you for your support and business.
Sr. Network Engineer

12 gig-e lines and still getting DOS'ed the ---- outta 'em. Sad... :rolleyes:
Btw, shouldn't this be in dedicated hosting?

WHT has been down for quite a while again, so I guess they are still having problems (or again having problems) :(
March 15th, 2003, 23:04
Whats going on with RS?
My server been down for 24 hours with 3 sites runnin forums, chats, store etc etc and as i look around the webhosting info sites it seems its been down since march 7th.
This the longest downtime ever and am losing many members and sales.
I dunno what to tell some of my clients besides that the network is down and many of them already wish to cancle thier orders cus they cant access thier account order information.
No way to contact RS other than the phone.
This is no good. :(

They had a massive Denial of Service attack yesterday night.
March 16th, 2003, 06:08

Doesnt work and i believe they hosted with RS.

This is the main gist of the problem. I can access rackshack and the forum.

At this point, if you cannot access our network in general, your IP has probably been blocked by our abuse team. The best idea is to place a call to our tech department to have them investigate. If you need a reboot and cannot access the members section, they will also be able to help.
We have been hit with a rather significant series of attacks since around 9PM Thursday evening similar, yet more advanced, than the attacks last week. Our network continues to function at better than 99.9% of its normal utilization telling me that there are a very few customers involved with no or limited access.
Bear in mind, we are hit with dozens of attacks every day which are generally handled within 1 to 3 minutes of when they start and rarely affect anything other than the precise server targeted.
While I cannot discuss these latest attacks in specific, I will say that they are different.
