Our server under cyber criminal attack

22 Nov 2003

The server hosting our website and housed in the U.S.A. was used by hackers to launch an attack to other servers. The kind of the attack is called DDoS (Distributed denial-of-Service) and it has been corrupting the content of the hard disks from the 22nd of November 2003.

Architecture of a DDoS Hacker Attack

The server was consequently detatched from the net by its administrators in order to repair and to track the hackers. The web and the mail services were completely blinded.

We bring our excuse to our visitors for the disguise, which we condemn and we cannot forgive: no ideals can be approved when methods are terroristic.
