Ddos attack on s38,s45,l3 servers

On August 24, 2023 (Thursday), around 8 am, a massive attack began on several of our servers (s38,s45,l3).

According to the information received from CERT Orange Polska, the attack is most likely carried out by a Russian hacking group “NoName075” that most often attacks the infrastructure of NATO countries.

The attack is very dispersed and comes from almost all over the world, most often from the VPN anonymization network via the http/https protocol with user agent Go-http-client/1.1

Incoming traffic is filtered all the time, our administrators are constantly working and blocking addresses from which the attack is carried out.

Our servers work properly, however, due to the very large number of connections from a large number of ip addresses, access to the website may be temporarily slightly difficult despite the actions we perform.

Update: The main attack on the servers ended on August 26, 2023 around 5:55 am after almost 46 hours.
Throughout the entire period of the attack, our anti-ddos system and administrators were watching to ensure that the servers works properly.
