HFS ~ HTTP File Server / From Russia With Hate
« on: June 18, 2014, 08:28:23 AM »
Hey guys, I've had something odd happening that I can't explain. Someone has been doing DoS style attacks on my HFS server (version 2.3 build 287), mostly from Russia. I've managed to block them now via other means, but banning them on HFS did nothing to stop them. Also, I know HFS doesn't reply to pings and my router is set to block them anyways, so how is this even possible? All I get is a bunch of fast Connect/Disconnects, with no information requested from the server. Oddly, it overloads HFS to where it can't respond to any other requests, but my internet connection is otherwise still working fine.

Is there some tactic I'm not aware of that would allow this to happen? I've been running HFS as a personal server for...I don't even know how many years...but this is the first time this has happened.
