Well, while the site appears to be safe, script kiddies have launced an automated attack against sites all over the web. In the past two days I have had 20GB+ sucked up from people trying to hack the site.

I have been adding IP addresses of those that have offended me to my deny list but it is almost a meaningless struggle although I have probably saved myself 5GB+ of damage because of it.

If for some reason you hear of somebody being rejected from the site then please let me know so I can remove it from the list. I somehow doubt that any of my users have downloaded 200MG+ at any point though and that is where my concentration has focused.

Just to let you know why we have had 100+ users for the past couple days. No, that is not normal. ;)

Found a handy little apache rewrite script that catches most of the attempts.

Hope the site is still working for everybody! Will check for angry emails tomorrow. :)
