Virginia Right! Under Fire Yesterday with DDOS Attack

Distributed Denial of Service Attack

Distributed Denial of Service Attack

Sorry for the outage yesterday between 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM. Virginia Right! was under attack with a Distributed Denial of Service. Part of the problem in resolving the issue is the fact that Virginia Right! is on a shared hosting server with many hosts using the same IP address. The first thing that has to be determined is which domain is under attack. They do this by temporarily assigning a static IP address to each site hosted on the server (as opposed to all of us sharing the same address). When they were done, everyone came back up except – Virginia Right!. So the attacks were specifically directed at us!

Once the Tech guys at my hosting site made the determination of who was being attacked, they began the task of blocking the attackers. Most of these are likely infected computers and the owners are not aware that they are being used to attack a website.

I would like to say Thank You to the person responsible for the attack. As a result, my shared server is now sporting some new hardware that will actually make the site better at no cost to me. But most of all, I am very appreciative that you would take the time and effort to attack one small, Virginia based blog. It tells me that what we are writing is considered very harmful to your leftist cause.

That you would attack Virginia Right! is quite an honor and verification that sites like this are effectively winning the battle.

That you would attack Virginia Right! is validation (not that we needed any) that you are terrified of logic and reasoning and the only method open to you is to attempt to shut down the messenger.

That you would attack Virginia Right! is an open admission that exposing the truth is devastating to you, and a serious threat.

That you would attack Virginia Right! is an admission that you are unable to win on a level playing field. Even on a field slanted your way.

Thanks to you, I am 100% positive I am on the right track. I challenge all of the Conservative Blogs to hit back that much harder. We are winning when they feel the need to shut us up.

I can see November from my blog, and it looks damn good!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
