As the headline reads, I spent hours and hours….roughly 7 of them learning IPTables, figuring out how to block IP address blocks and re configuring my router’s built in firewall.
It all seemed to be working…at the end of the evening, or actually somewhere near the wee hours of the morning I bragged about victory and told those hacker bastages to “bring it on!”. That could have been a mistake, because early this morning i was once again greeted with an empty database server.
So this time I will ask politely, please go away you freaking cretins and go get a job, a life and quit overloading the memory in my server and killing my MySql database server.
I am fairly certain that I know who the culprits are, but I won’t name anyone this time……except the French!…The Chinese!, The Ukrainians and those pesky Ruskies.
So I once again say, go ahead, bring it on you miserable bastards, because this time I have backups!
(walking away now, shaking my head knowing that this post was probably a really bad idea, but I am an American and you can’t break me, nor my spirit, nor my resolve…meaning I am not like that twit who resides in OUR White House in DC.)
