Explanation

Posted by merloch on Friday 11 May 2001

As many of our regulars have found out, QuakeNet have been in a state of chaos during the last 36 hours. I will now try to give a explanation.

Early yesterday morning, an unidentified person or a group of persons initiated a Distributed Denial of Service attack on the irc.dk server cluster. Thus affecting both IRC servers and the server hosting the channel service Q. In order to maintain some means of network stability, the ISP housing the servers were forced to block all access to the network segment where the QuakeNet servers was located. During the last 36 hours we have fought to reestablish the network, and it seems we have now succeeded. We have brought the channel service online, and have reorganized the network to function upon the loss of a central hub. We still have work to do and the QuakeNet email addresses is not operational yet, but we're working on a solution.

Police agencies are now involved in this incident, and we hope the responsible person / group of persons will be prosecuted.

Once we bring the remaining parts of QuakeNet online, and return to a normal state of operations, we will of course notify you through this website.
