Please accept my sincerest apologies for PheroTruth being offline!
07-19-2013 10:16 PM

Hey everyone, it's been a nightmarish couple of days, and I want to offer my sincerest apologies for the forum being down, but it's finally back online!

PheroTruth was the latest casualty in a string of DDoS attacks spanning numerous websites related to pheromones, and it took involvement from senior system administrators at the datacenter, as well as nearly the entire staff of CloudFlare including the CEO to finally resolve the issue and mitigate the attack.

The good news is that I will be trying to contact all of the other companies that have been hit by this attack or are still under attack and letting them know what we did to stop it, and with the measures we've taken we should be protected from just about everything less than a nuclear strike.

The email system is still unavailable, as that was a potential gateway for initiating a new attack or continuing the ongoing one, but that will be rectified tomorrow.

Again, I want to apologize for the down time, and for any of you who happened to see the initial suspension page shown when the site was initially taken off line, that one's entirely on me, as it didn't occur to me that the text on the page needed to be changed before taking the domain offline, only that it needed to be taken offline so the server would remain responsive and we could work on stopping the attack.

Nobody changes until the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of change....

woohooo glad to be back!

NuTrix- I wouldn’t change a thing in my past because it’s made me who I am, and I LIKE me, but I’ll be damned if I let 1 single thing in my past hold me prisoner there

Nice one Mark. Good job on the prompt response and follow up. It was good of you to let us all know what was/has been going on.

Good to be back! Sun bespectacled

Thanks a lot Mark, I've been getting a bit anxious haha.

This seems like a plot of a shitty movie,

First Chris Mone Stash got busted into (Awhile back), then Alpha Dream and Androtics Direct suffered a DDos attack. Then Pherotruth and LovePotion suffered a DDos attack and someone Broke into HAX Lab in NY over the 4th of July Weekend. Something seems off and no I haven't been watching too many Scooby Doo cartoons

Fear is the greatest obstacle to learning but fear is your best friend. Fear is like fire, if you learn to control it, you let it work for you: it can warm you in the winter, give you light when you are in the dark, and produce energy. If you don’t control it, it’ll destroy you and everything around you.You must understand Fear so you can manipulate it, because if you don’t you won’t be able to achieve your objective or save your life. - Cus D'Amato (The trainer that made Mike Tyson a Champion)
