FA is still down, DDoS is still commencing.

About 20 hours ago Fur Affinity went down due to a Distributed Denial of Service attack. The site was being flooded with traffic exceeding our bandwidth limits.

Since then, the website has been on-and-off, working sparsely and showing different anomalies when it did, as it has already been reported. Apparently the people behind this DDoS are still at it, and they render our servers completely inaccessible from the internet.

So until this attack stops, neither FA, nor FA's forums will be accessible. Guess this is that proverbial lump of coal FA got as a present for this Christmas, in advance, for all the bad things it has done in the year that nearly passed.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and any further updates will be posted here, since FA's forums became an unstable platform for relaying information.

[edit]
Fur Affinity is currently up and running, but we don't know for how long. In case of another wave of incoming traffic, i am afraid we would have to go offline again.
