Site outage

Early on Thursday last week (PST) our websites encountered an attack, one which is often referred to as a “DDOS” (distributed denial-of-service) attack.

While our network is setup to handle very substantial traffic (it deals with over 50 million visitors each month), as has been seen by other large Internet sites (Twitter, Facebook, Google et. al.) such a large scale attack will cause connection difficulties. In this we were no different, and it wasn't until sometime on the weekend where we were able to implement a successful resolution to the issue.

As part of the implementation of the resolution you may have encountered some issues with the site and its functionality, we are working through each of those items, and if you come across an issue, if you could please post it in here to ensure that we have seen it, it would be appreciated.

We have been (and continue to) work around the clock until all the issues are resolved, our apologizes for the inconvenience.
Thanks,
Adrian – Internet Brands

Still having issues. It sometimes will load a page ok but more often than not, it takes several reloads to get it done, if at all.

Sorry - we fixed the db error when searching just after it being reported.
The other issues should have been resolved too.

Again, sorry!

Don't know if the DDOS is still "on" or not, but things seem pretty-much back to "normal" as of this writing.

Thanks for all you guys do to keep the site up and running smoothly. I realize what it COULD be like!

Thanks for letting us know Pop.
We are still experiencing a lot of "malicious" traffic, but have invested a great deal in hardware that can manage it appropriately so we can keep the site a'runnin!

Took 10 mins just to be able to post this meessage. Seems like sometimes it is ok and other times you wait and wait or you keep trying to reload the page.

Since you are not a supporter, you see ads.

Could this be from IB's ad server?
