Greyworm DDOS

9:50PM We’re working hard to mitigate a DDOS targeting two sites on this server. Sites on this server will be unresponsive until the attack has been stopped.

10:20PM Almost there, we’ve stopped 90% of the attack, now blocking the last sources.

10:33PM Things are almost back to normal. Server iowait is a bit high, so sites will be a bit slow until that is resolved. Thanks for your patience, and apologies for this inconvenience.
