Salam and hello everyone. I just got a news from Amanz regarding Nuffnang Malaysia website which has been hacked by Gaysec. Gaysec is probably a group of hacker or an individual which recently has leaked several users database from several well known websites such as TM Streamyx, Geng Blogger, CIMB and the latest one is Nuffnang Malaysia. Nuffnang Malaysia website is currently inaccessible and it has been placed into maintenance mode. If you didn’t know, Nuffnang is one of the largest blog advertising network in Malaysia and south east Asia, hence this incident would be great challenge for Nuffnang to ensure their website’s security is always at optimum level as well as to ensure their customers and users’ privacy are protected properly. This incident should be a good lesson to Nuffnang.
There is no official announcement from Nuffnang regarding this issue.
Update by Nuffnang Malaysia.
It seems it takes a long time for Nuffnang ads in this blog to load and this ads loading issue has caused slow page loading for this blog. Hence, I’ve disabled all Nuffnang ads in this blog for a while.
p/s: It is good to know that Gaysec’s objective is not more than just to pointing out the security holes of the websites they have hacked, rather than damaging the system.

Salam and hello all. Have you ever checked your hosting directory can be browse or not? Don’t get what I mean? Ok, since most blog using WordPress as the platform, here is an example on how to check either your hosting directory can be browse or not. Try type in this URL on your browser, http://yourdomain.com/wp-content/plugins/. What can you see? If the result gives you a 404 error, it means that your hosting directory browsing and indexing is turned on. If not, it means you still not enabled it.

Salam and hello everyone. If you notice yesterday, the connection to this website quite slow and sometimes got internal server error message. At first, I didn’t know what the cause of this matter but last night, while chatting with Sam (Serverfreak Support), he said the servers have been attacked by DDOS attack hence cause the network and connection to the server becomes slow.
What is DDOS attack? Mr. Wiki got the answer.
A denial-of-service attack (DoS attack) or distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a DoS attack may vary, it generally consists of the concerted, malevolent efforts of a person or persons to prevent an Internet site or service from functioning efficiently or at all, temporarily or indefinitely. Perpetrators of DoS attacks typically target sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks, credit card payment gateways, and even DNS root servers.
I didn’t chat too long with Sam since at the time I chat with him, there’s another DDOS attack. But anyway, hope this problem can be solve asap. Anyway, sorry for any inconveniences for those who are surfing this blog.
But I think the attacks already stopped since the connection to the blog quite fast right now, maybe need time to fully recover from the attack. Anyway, thanks for Sam for his hard work. He already didn’t sleep for 5 days. Ok, that just for your information.
I also noticed that some of other blogs which are hosted at Serverfreak also inaccessible such as Knizam.com and Topotato.com. I don’t know if the problem is cause by the same reason but it seems I can’t access their website in the past few days. I already tried to connect to their blog using both UMobile and Maxis Broadband but still I got the page tells the page can’t be viewed. At first I thought it might be because of the ISP itself, but trying on another ISP also come out with the same result. Till now I still can’t access their blog.
p/s: have you experienced ddos attack before?
UPDATE: IzzatRuslan.com was down for 3 hour 30 minutes from 7.35am today, so sorry for any incoveniences. But, the connection seems going back to normal already. (3.34PM)
