Spam & Site Attacks

Sorry for the massive spam attacks on this site. The CAPTCHA filter does not yet really work. It's a plague. I wonder what this sort of violence is supposed to be good for in the first place. The postings do not even make any sense.

Also, we experienced a DDOS attack already, after only a few days online. Some bot net, obviously originating from China, with thousands of computers requested a million or so pages, crashing the database server. Heck, what a nonsense.

All software is up to the latest update, security measures, firewalls, intrusion detection, you name it. A collective experience of over 30 years of computing behind the scenes, to no avail. It's a meaningless war.

Ok, lamented enough. I just want to let you know that we are sorry in case you received lots of Wiki update notifications due to the spam. We are working on it.

Hi,

It seems the main Cognitone website is down as well? I'm getting 404 errors for www.cognitone.com

No, main site is fine again. Thanks for reporting. Will have a look at the logs.

No, it's bad for me.

Every time I go to www.cognitone.com it automatically goes to http://www.cognitone.com/errors/not_found.html

Are you using foreign proxy servers to access the site? Some of these are banned by the firewall due to past attacks.
