    Who knows... I thought it was an ICMP Flood. Oh well.

    Can someone explain to me how the hell an ICMP flood would affect a server running on PORT 80?

    ICMP != TCP.

    If it was an ICMP flood, your apache services would not be affected (therefore, no extra "guests").

    We have a site project here of our own (we're a webhost) that is so popular that its normal visitors usage was about equal to a medium DoS attack.

    We've added more servers to it recently to make it faster with the same amount of request / second. Funny though ^_^

    Well, the attack on I was successful. lol They didn't take the server down... but I disabled the forum to decrease the server load. I didn't think it'd have much effect considering I'm on a Dual Xeon and a 10k RPM drive SCSI but... obviously it did.

    Most users ever online was 2628, Today at 08:42 AM.
