        Sending more ICMP packets than the server can handle.

                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.

                  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 ^_^

                    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").

                        It very well could have been, but an ICMP flood did not cause the guests.

                        ICMP packets dont have a port, they are like "PING", there are also packets in ICMP involved in the creation of tracert things and the like, though i cant remember the name of those packets.

                          Ah... maybe it involved 2 different attack methods.

                              You wouldn't be so happy with a real dDoS attack though. No vBulletin software could hanlde that; obviously.
                              It IS a DDOS attack, just using a different method. There are many different types. This one appears to be trying to flood the server via the end-user software, in this case the vB forums.
