Hey guys,

We've had quite a strong DDoS attack today and it's finally been filtered. I'm now working on a solution that an attack can't hit us that hard again!

In the meanwhile I've hardened the client loader to try connecting to the Emps-World homepage up to 10 times within an interval of 2.5 seconds. If you wish to download the hardened loader, feel free to do so: http://emps-world.net/data/Emps-World.jar (It's not mandatory, all old loaders will always work! :) )

Moreover, I've spoken with our host. We've setup a special firewall that should mitigate DDoS attacks better in the future. That means that we shouldn't have downtimes anymore.

All the best,
Thomy

Great news, I didn't had any problems with the attack though. Could still login because I didn't close my client at that time :)

What a great news, well-done Thomy! :)

I may not be the best, but I'm definitely not like the rest.
