You have nothing to apologize for. You guys volunteer your time away from your families and other things you were going to do and it is much appreciated. No one expects you to drop your personal stuff and make this your number one priority.

You guys did awesome work and your volunteer efforts in this key position are much appreciated.

What amazes me was that through all of it Kipper was able to compose one of the best updates I've ever seen! Nearly snorted my Diet Coke out my nose while reading it - I've updated my sig line to pay Kipper a tribute

Wes, everything you and Kipper did was much appreciated. I think it was clear from the start that Easy CGI was dragging their feet. I still find it odd that they offer shared hosting w/o firewall protection -- how many people who buy hosting would know how to protect against threats?

So, what kind of scripts did you guys put in place? How do they block DoS attacks?

Right on, Kipper and Wes.

I work at a company that only does business in the USA. I've chosen to block a ton of international IP ranges at our firewalls. This has significantly reduced our spam mail influx that the spam filters have to deal with and reduced the number of security events I record every week.

Just whacking a few giant /8 non-USA networks made a big difference, but I still add more networks every week. (From whomever has decided I'm a target for their unwanted traffic). The masks keep getting smaller and smaller, so I must be making progress overall.

There are some international addresses that I can't block (like IBM's big ol' mail server overseas.) so it takes some care to keep from interfering with some domestic traffic.

If you think it would help, I can generate a list of the networks I'm blocking traffic from.

I'm surprised EasyCGI didn't step in too, curious about what they had to say about this.
