    Hi Folks

    Those of you that actively use the cable forums will have noticed the majority of the big cable box sellers websites are down or have been down at some stage over the past 7 days.

    All of these websites have been under DDOS attack.

    It is very suspicious that all the big cable box sellers websites have been under attack at some stage or another over the last few days.

    Those of you wondering who i am, i am the owner of DVB Junkie UK. My site has been under attack since 10.30PM tonight. I managed to identify the hit within 10 minutes of it happening.

    Over the last few days Sky Wonder, Wizard Satellite, TheBox Distribution, Iwantabox, Satandcable have also been under DDOS attack. One of the other cable forums is under attack also Tech Watch.

    Who ever is doing this is specifically targeting the cable box sellers & cable forums also.

    I just thought i would make people aware of the situation.

    Cheers

    There still down today , well i think you'd agree that because the attacks are directed against certain suppliers the finger of suspicion falls very heavily on a certain ring fenced industry which historically has had a past of shady dealings and industrial espionage , those who play this game will in time reap what they sow...silly boys

    Hi Folks

    It gets even worse.

    The web designer who made the majority of the websites has now also been ddos attacked.

    This is a very well organised attack.

    I should have my website back up by the end of the weekend hopefully.

    Cheers

    Zemme

    Wizardmods has suffered a few DDoS attacks over the past few days according to reports on other forums.

    Give them a few days and they'll be back.
