Warning: mersenne.org may be offline some during the next few days.

Our ISP sent us an automated warning that we had triggered too much data traffic to a specific target over a period of time. In other words, we looked like we were part of a ddos attack. When this happened three times, we were knocked offline for 45 minutes.

Unfortunately, madpoo is unavailable until Sunday to do a deep dive into our logs, run anti-virus scans, etc. So if it happens again, we may suffer more 45 minute outages.

I looked at the logs briefly, did a whois on the target, and learned little.
