Hi there guys, i'm new here, it seems like a nice active place...anyway...



My "Friend" has just show me something that i'm a little worried about, he just took my site off the net, the site was unavailable for a while, and when he said it was up again, it went up...now, he did twice, so i'm pretty sure he DID it....

He called it something like "Flash Flood" and he mentioned that only with VERY good hosts you can stop this happening....now i don't want that guy to be able to get my site down again....any opinion of what that might be? and how can i stop it?

First thing you should do is change all your passwords - ftp, registrar, hosting control panel, etc..

This doesnt sound like much of a friend - have they been blackmailing you?

Agreed. I think this might be one of them "Internet Friends" whom you chat with for 10 seconds and then he's considered a friend.

well first i would agree change all the passwords. Then i would go and find his IP. Log it from your site if you know how then go to your cpanel or what ever you have thats similar and Block it. As long as hes not on dial up this should keep him occupied for a little while

Here's some info on the subject:

# FLASH FLOODS -- these are when a user on a shell (Unix) account sends a command code that causes the other shell (Unix) users on the channel to have their screen codes reset so that it becomes unreadable.

You can protect against it by typing "mesg n" (no quotation marks) at the shell prompt before running IRC. This will stop anyone from resetting your screen codes while you are on IRC.
