we have suffered a DDoS attack during the last few days which made our website unavailable for most of the Thursday and Wednesday.
The attack is now averted, but it has probably affected other services – mainly the Bitcoin gateway and automated emails.
This has surely resulted in some of the payments being not confirmed – PLEASE everybody who has not received an email confirmation after paying with BTC, drop us a message so we can link your payment with your order manually.
No data has been lost and none of our systems have been breached.
We should be good now (I dare anybody who did it to try again), and will ship all standing orders later today or during tomorrow order.
Please have our apologies for the inconvenience. We believe we have now put enough measures in place to prevent similar situation in the future.
So, apparently “ROSKOMNADZOR” (Russian internet censors – kinda like Chinese ones) itself is behind the DDoS attack.
Why exactly is beyond our comprehension.
Ourselves, nor our hosting provider have nothing to do with Russia and they have already blocked our website to fellow Russian researchers quite a while ago.
A need to DDoS something they don’t like and is beyond their reach tells a lot about people working for this loathsome organization (they block porn too).
If you are in a good mood, feel free to say hi to:
[email protected] . They probably need a hug or two (or maybe some porn).
