Beemaster is under attack
« on: March 19, 2023, 09:38:37 am »
To all members,
Right now the Beemaster server is under attack. The CPU has been working at 100% due to the attack. Robo and Eivndm have been working on it and are trying to make it so that the attackers are stopped. It?s not easy.
I apologize for the inconvenience of having a hard time getting in. As a matter of fact it has been very difficult to get this message to you. Hopefully we will have this resolved soon.

G3,
We are constantly being hit with people trying to add their advertising to our site. The system automatically screens out a lot of them but if they take the time to sign in properly they can then add their links like you saw. Our moderators are constantly catching them, banning them and removing their posts. They, our moderators have been doing a great job.
Robo is still in the process of upgrading the system and moving to a better protected server. Hopefully this will stop a future attack.
