        Every think that the DOS is really our webservers calling back? That there are so many of them that the they think it's a DOS attack?

          That would explain why vB3 is so big.. They had to hide that code in a huge thing so no one would come across it..

            This has been going on for a couple of weeks, not just a couple of days!

            Also, if you look at vbulletin.com/links.php and take the number of links listed (which I am sure there are lots more owned which are not listed). If you figure half are owned and half are leased, then you are looking at almost $500,000 right there! I'm pretty sure it is a little more than that

              Josh, those links are for tips regarding the location of fugitives and terrorists. You might get somewhere if you contacted their office and got one of their agents on it:

                I'm still blocked LMAO! The FBI could care less about DDOS attacks as well. I remember the day we called them and they did jack sh*t. Diddn't even call us back. Only way we got out of it was to write a small script to counter DDOS them back... Sure enough this stopped them for a bit but they did return another day and then suddendly they stopped...

                  The FBI only considers it important if there is $5000 worth of damage.

                    lost sales is considered as damages..

                    Jelsoft has to make only 32 sales a day to claim that...and James provides records prior to the attacks showing 32+ sales daily, well FBI better move its butt..

                    On another note, since Jelsoft is a UK based company, isn't there something in the UK that would address this issue? Like MI5 (is that the right agency?? )

                      Nope,

                      There is a specialised police unit that deals with cybercrime.

                        That might be an agency Jelsoft might want to look into

                          Already did. They were even more useless than the FBI unfortunately. Seemed totally clueless even as to what a DDoS attack is...

                          "Is it like a virus?"
                          "Is it something to do with spam?"

                            I know you don't want to provide any info, but could you at least provide the county? Isn't it better to have hundreds of people looking for loop holes for you than just a few?
                            Also, I work for a state law enforcement agency, and the FBI was suppose to be open a regional office for the Nation Computer Crime squad right down the road from where I work. If that has opened yet, I can ride down and talk with them and try and help you out as best I can.

                              As CeleronXT has already guessed or worked out, our attacker is resident in Saudi Arabia.

                                Funny how i had a troubled user come onto our forums being very rude and causing trouble that was from Saudi Arabia.

                                I deleted the users account, so i can't be of much help.
