We have got the notification from two programs about DDoS attacks, these sites have been suffering lately. So, ExpertPortfolio which has been taking the Top 1 position in our listing for pretty long time has started experience certain troubles lately. The site uptime decreased and we naturally asked the official authorities of ExpertPortfolio for the official version of this issues. And pretty soon within a few hours we got the reply from Todd Williams, the Head of the Support Department of ExpertPortfolio investment project. Mr. Williams confirmed the official position of the management of the company about DDoS attack, a very massive one that caused major troubles for the site loading. The technical department is working 24/7 to mitigate the DDoS, and frankly speaking for me the site is loading well enough. Still according to the official version the attack is still in the progress, which may lead to temporal downtimes from time to time.
Another project, which has been experiencing troubles because of DDoS is InvSmart. Compared to ExpertPortfolio, InvSmart is a brand new HYIP, monitored for 2 days on the HYIPNews.com listing. The attack to this site has lasted more than 15 hours, as reported and exceeded the 1000 Mbps and have null routed the whole subnet of the hosting provider. The only appropriate solution to get the site of InvSmart back online was to move it to the new server. This has been completed and right now, the site of InvSmart is generally accessible.
