TD down for a few more hours

Post  Admin on Sat Oct 27, 2012 3:46 pm

TD Server is down, I am was seeing the last 7 days lots attacks from a krypt bon net.
Not sure if server got hacked, I contacted the server park, a restore of full and incr backup is scheduled.
This might take a while.

I have automatic backup also transfered to my home.
10/27/2012 11 am is save on my hard drive.

I also might use this time to buy another virtual server with more memory since the backup restore has to run anyway.

More information later

I did order a new machine today from the server park.
Memory 4 GB instead of 1 GB, double hard drive size.
It will take me couple hours during the next days to install database and get all ready to go.
I will add to this thread the down time (about 30 minutes) when new machine is going online and domain IP is moved.

Hopefully this machine can handle bon net attacks without a problem and still run the database and TD on normal speed.

fyi: the attacker is constantly searching for leaks in the security and looking for engine7.php engine.php and other windows web server files.
a krypt proxy server is used to constantly change the IP address to a random number to that a trace back or a block is not possible,
these attacks come from different machines and are making TD slow right now, very very annoying.

Updates during the next days

okay,

today 11/1/2012 at 1 pm I did the database move to the new machine after the new server did run stable in test for 2 days.

This machine is faster has more memory, a new database version, so there should be less down time because of Appliation exception caused by "out of memory".

The DNS records of TrackDollar got updated today at 1 pm. Some devices and machines may have the old IP in the cache, so if you cant reach trackdollar.com try to connect to www.trackdollar.com, if that still does not work you can connect to TrackDollar.net that is a mirror site without the login cookie. So you will have to enter you password everytime you connect to it.
Within 6 hours everybody should be able to connect to TrackDollar.com

Maps and graphs do update right now on the new server, that is an 20 hours process for all users in the background. So you might see 2-3 days old maps or graphs on your profile within the next 20 hours until all is updated.
