For instance, if it is a DOS, then what took the bad guys so long to hit? I don't buy it.

Full Disclosure: When it comes to web technology, I don't really know what I'm talking about.

this is not web technology, is cracking.

In a DOS a single cracker flood a server with lot of traffic, easily blockable as is one source.

This attack require a bad guy loose his time behing his PC.

In a DDoS, hundreds of zombie PCs from around the world, flood a server with lot of traffic.

This attack, once PCs are hijacked, is completely automatic or sometime remote controlled.

This second attack is very hard to block, as imply many sources. As now no "protocol" solution was found by IETF, the internet guy. Mitigation technique imply DNS reprogramming.

Zombie are Windows PC without the Windows Update done monthly, or without antivirus, antimalware, firewall, stupid users that keep the PC always on and connected to the internet, without protections.

Looks like I spoke too soon. I'm getting gateway timeouts (again).

No doubt we'll hear from the admins when there is something they can share; I wish them well with their endeavours to get this sorted out.

I have not had any luck reporting spam at all today and the member home page won't come up now either.

Edit: Home page came up this time. It still isn't letting me get to report the spam I sent in via email though.

I just sent in another four via email and decided to check if they would report normally.

Boom! They went just like clockwork and I was able to report the previous six spam messages as well.

Came here to check if I was the only one getting the "gateway timeouts".

I am glad to see its not just me (thinking my computer had something to do with it) and sorry that SpamCop is having the problem.

I have been receiving the timeouts and slow loads for around 4-5 days. Sometimes it works as normal, then out of the blue it timeouts, have removed more waiting to process than processed...

Today is worse than yesterday. I cannot report any spam at all. Just keep getting "Gateway Timeout - In read" and

Gateway Timeout

The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.

I can't even get to the login page now.

I've just sent a bunch of emails as attachments for reporting.

Keeping my fingers crossed!

Hi, Don,

...Unlike the most immediately previous e-mail problem (for which, I point out for the uninitiated, you and your SpamCop colleagues have no responsibility), you have come by relatively frequently to give us something of an update (however negative your reports). I am very happy that my fellow SpamCop users have not taken advantage of your doing so to "kill the messenger." And I want to let you know that I, for one, appreciate your dropping by and posting -- thank you!

what does this board have against the word "scri_pt"? It inserts a _ in the middle for some stupid reason.
...No, it isn't stupid, at all! What it does is to make it a little harder for ne'er-do-wells to insert damaging web scripting logic into the SpamCop Forum pages. It also does not interfere with our messages that include the word "scri_pt." :) <g>

Hi, A.J.,

...Thank you so much! And an early Nationale feestdag/ Fête nationale/ Nationalfeiertag to you on 21 July!

:-) Thank you Steve, I hope it will be nice when it comes around. Merci Steve, j'espère qu'elle sera bonne quand elle arrivera. Dank U Steve, ik hoop dat hij goed zal zijn als hij komt. Danke sehr Steve, ich hoffe, dass er, wenn er kommt, gut wird sein.

And let us now see if I can trick that BBS software to display the word script. (Hint: Unicode zero-length characters were not made for nothing).

Update:

The company cat has been sent out to find a really big rat for the wheel.

The engineers know that size isn't the actual problem, but they want the big rat anyway.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience!!

Here is the latest boilerplate:

We're dealing with a huge problem. The engineers are on it, but the solution has eluded us so far.

I wish I had some hope to offer, but we haven't gotten to that point yet.

Sorry for all the trouble!

I was getting the Sigalarm things for the past few days but now I'm just seeing very long load times.

Yeah, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have just reported one spam message and cancelled another, both "normally". Notice the blank gaps on the activity graph (which you can reach by clicking the thumbnail near top right of forum pages).

Thanks Don for keeping us updated, and let's hope their big rat or squirrel or hamster or whatever ;-) will fit into the cage and get things working. And yes, size may not be the problem, but big brass on the telephone can sometimes get things moving faster than someone just as qualified (but with a less well-known name) would.

There is still some sort of problem. I have been trying to submit a spam report since 4 July 2012 15:22:49 GMT and have been getting:

Reference #1.504434d.1341474424.79850b61

I can ping "WWW.SPAMCOP.NET with the following results:
