Hey folks, for anyone trying to access the gallery in the last 8 hours or so… The gallery was attacked by a bot from china (IP 18.104.22.168) which was apparently looking for a way to compromise the system. This bot tried every Windows attack in the book against the Gallery, but failed in the end (when I locked the IP out via the routers). Luckily, the Gallery isn’t a Windows server.
In any case, the bot DID slow connections to the server down dramatically. Please be aware that the gallery is not on my high-bandwidth server net, but on the lower bandwidth high-storage net.
