    Cricket Web under attack

    Cricket Web is currently under a massive DDoS attack that has been causing problems over the past few hours.

    Our hosts are doing the best they can in trying to mitigate it, but as has been happening there will be many periods of downtime until it stops.

    Was wondering what was going on. Dire tbh; hope it works out soon and there's no damage done.

    It is probably 4chan.

    They have been attacking plenty of forums recently. Redcafe was attacked last week for example.

    Seems strange after the PS Network they would do this. But they are some idiots.

    There's been hundreds and hundreds of ip addresses banned. If anyone knows of anyone who has been banned by mistake as a result of this, get them to email me their ip.
