9AM KRAUSE: I figured I would update everyone on the latest news on the
hacking front. The attempt continues.
Right now we are being hacked for passwords 15,000 times a minute on the
main server. They will not get in as they do not even realize after a few
attempts it just looks like their efforts may work but in reality the
process in place locks them out quickly. It just does not make that
apparent. You have to be impressed with their persistence and stupidity.
I have also put in place 2 honeypots for them to play with and they are
trying those as well. It is comical but I am taking it very seriously as
you can tell.
Rackspace yesterday had the craziest response. They have been trying to
hack firstname.lastname@example.org so much that rackspace disabled my account! They
disabled my account because of 'attempts' and not a 'compromise'!?!?!
CRAZY! I just ripped them a new one and they apologized. I have never
heard of a 3d party service disabling something because of attempts. My
password is 25 numbers and letters and could not ever possibly be
compromised. Rackspace is now putting a team onto finding them.
Hey hackers. GOOD LUCK! Keep at it. When you get in just know I wanted you
to get in and you better make sure you know what you actually got into.
You need to look at your own servers because I just finally found a few of
them. My power is strong as well so this is a warning to you. Hacking
hackers is usually pretty easy. I will get in soon. I have been a hacker
since 1991 and I actually know what I am doing.
So anyways fun stuff. Nothing changes. We have smart rotating daily
backups. Backups are stored on hard drives that are both up and duplicates
powered down instantly in case we get compromised so our stuff cannot be
encrypted and used as ransom. There is nothing a hacker can do to harm us.
We are just too smart, too quick, and too vigilant. We have backups on 2
clouds as well as we have even always put them on optical storage in case
a nuclear war or bad magnetic solar storm wipes out data. Medievia will
always continue, forever, and there is not one thing anyone can do about
PLAYERS, what we do need is FUNDS! I have asked for donations and I got 3
so far for a total of 100 dollars. Please step up. I need a new server
soon. We need funds for marketing. We have many players who we have given
years and years of gaming and social action to and we need your support.
Medievia is not a charity for you guys. We cannot print money.
Medievia has cost me money to keep going every month for the past 8 years.
Please forgo buying a new game this month or maybe one dinner and support
the game that actually cares about you. I could use an emotional lift this
month. We are a few more months away from being able to market the game.
Homes will be in soon as well as many new features. I am sorry it is
taking so long.
