    DoS fun

    If you experienced slower page loads for the last 2 hours, I'd like to inform you that a little kid was having some fun trying to DoS this site. Even though the effect was as little as they come by, his mother should be proud he was the first to ever have an effect on this site.
    Keeps me on the edge of my seat... though next time, do bring a bigger challenge.

    A DoS is not actually hacking, as he didn't try to break into the server to alter files or extract information. He was just using a script that sends a lot (in some cases, only a few, slow ones might suffice, but in general...) of bogus requests to the server in order to hog up its resources. A successful DoS hence makes the server unavailable for anyone else, as there are no more resources available. This was never the case, though it managed to cause a temporary itch on my baby.

    Note: It's far from the first time an attack was tried.

    I use this to avoid those problems:
    apt-get install libapache-mod-dosevasive

    Code:
    $HOST["url"] =~"^/(index.php)?(\?.*)?$" {
        evasive.max-conns-per-ip = 4
    }

    Code:
    #######################################################
    ###  CaMeL  lighttpd.conf  BEGIN
    #######################################################
    #
    #### modules to load
    server.modules           = ( "mod_expire",
    			     "mod_auth",
                                 "mod_access",
                                 "mod_evasive",
                                 "mod_compress",
                                 "mod_status",
                                 "mod_redirect",
                                 "mod_accesslog" )
    
    #### performance options (aggressive timeouts)
    server.max-keep-alive-requests = 5
    server.max-keep-alive-idle = 15
    server.max-read-idle     = 15
    server.max-write-idle    = 15
    
    ## number of child worker processes to spawn (0 for lightly loaded sites)
    # server.max-worker      = 300

    It's a pitty it's not legal to offer you a little part of a botnet for revenche, Tom ;-)))
    When you earnestly believe that you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, then there's no end to what you can't do...

    Appreciate the help & indeed, that package come in quite useful with the older server where we used lighttpd, not running on lighty anymore though
    Either way, got quite an elegant solution in place: perl script to check last part of the access.log & ban the ips creating the specified requests. Has been working since...

    Well, I'm not one to believe in revenge either way. Script kiddies get bored easy enough & lack the knowledge to try to DoS in another way.
