I got a lot of 520 errors this evening.. x.x
Posted 1/4/15
Given the recent attack the 502 gave us a close scare. I thought it was my connection at first, but then I saw the 502 thread and CR went out for maintenance for a few seconds, and then for a moment was like, "oh no.." ... I'm glad its still up..

I am in the greater St. Louis, Missouri area, and it was getting slaughtered by DDoS so I couldn't really do anything with great success for a couple hours...

i think they turned comments off so we could watch the videos while they fixed the servers.

one thing is certain,crunchy will upgrade their security and servers if not now then soon because ive read more hate then support posts and it saddens me on how ruthless this community can be

You are right about the CR community, or any community really, overreacting to anything.
However, i pay them to have them give me a service. If they do not produce that service, how am i supposed to react?

Understandable but 3 days isnt really a big deal unless you really have nothing to do which is kinda a problem, even more so understandable for monthly subcribers though.

My feels on it all is "if not today then next week is a double episode week"

Time to time when they update new series to the webpage they have maintenance issues on the server.
I remember when they added manga 2.5 series the site went down 6 hours.
But now at day with cyber criminals in every corner and CloudFlare Ray ID 520 welp...

DDOS is done when the black hats take over tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of computers around the world. They do this by infecting the computers with a trojan that contains a tiny payload that allows them to turn all of those computers into zombies. Then one day, when the black hats are ready, they issue a command that goes all over the Internet. If your machine has this Trojan hidden within it, your computer carries out it's orders and begins to target a website - along with all of the other zombie computers around the world. This horde of zombputers will, over and over, and over, and over, again try to access a web page from that web site.

The website will then be overloaded and crash. That is how a DDOS works.

The only way to prevent a DDOS is for ALL of those computer owners to install, and keep up to date, anti-virus and anti-malware software on their machines. Use care when visiting webpages that may be suspicious (that's how you get most of your zombputer viruses). Keep Windoze up to date (well, that's not always helpful, because Windoze is just a screen door full of holes and rips - very easily exploitable, but you should keep it updated anyway). And finally, notice if your computer is getting on the Internet all by itself, and doing stuff without your input. If your router is blinking away, if your hard drive is just clicking it's butt off, but you din't do nothing, then chances are you have a zombputer. Do something about it.

As you can see. These are all things that millions of computer users world wide should do, but do not. So the answer to your question is. No. It is not possible to prevent a DDOS attack. All a company can do is to figure out how to defend against it - after it's begun.

Soooo.... assuming this site is legit I just watched a giant DDoS of doom come from Russia to the US... that's one huge botnet. Why doesn't anyone secure their PCs properly?
