neb:mattwnz:It's a distributed attack, that's what the first 'D' is, there's no "IP range" to block. Eventually the Russian group doing it will send in a demand for BTC to go away. The problem is in this case that nothing in NZ has ever been of any interest to attackers so there's been little motivation to protect against it. I guess as with taking quarantine more seriously it'll now get some budget devoted to it.
Doesn't seem to be getting huge amount of coverage, considering this is a big part of NZs infrastructure. Saw some experts on the news last night discussing it. Normally I understand with a DDOS on a website server, that the admins would block the IP ranges of those doing the attack.
Guessing then that Cloudflare could be a solution to them? 4 Days in a row though isn't good.
