Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Defacement mirror Alldas.de is looking for a new home after its ISP was subject to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack over the weekend.

The Syn-flood attack, which lasted 24 hours, against German ISP Kvalito had a severe effect on the service it was able to provide to all its customers, making the web sites it hosted unavailable. Exactly what provoked the attack is unclear, but Kvalito is clearly blaming Alldas.de.

A posting on Alldas.de said that Kvalito ultimately decided to "pull the plug on Alldas.de more or less" on Saturday, stripping it of email and filtering its traffic so that it could only receive http.

The service run by Alldas.de is now only able to run a very basic service and it seems clear that Kvalito has given its tenant notice to quit. Alldas.de will have to move home for the second time in just a year.

To its credit, Alldas.de has made quiet clear what it needs from any perspective future landlords.

ISPs should be able to handle a growing volume of traffic that has reached 300GB/month, deal with 10 flames per month about port scanning - though Alldas.de has offered to answer those on its own - and tolerate the occasional DDoS attack.

After Attrition.org decided to get out of the defacement archiving business last month (after decided it was too much hassle to continue as a hobby), Alldas.de has become the only game in town. Any admins out there keen to save this worthwhile service can find more information here. ®
