Attacks Continuing

Release Date: 26 Jul 08
Category: General Announcement

Attacks on the site continue. Read to learn more.

This is a brief update on the attacks.

Since coming back online yesterday, HASA has been subjected to a number of attacks, including more SQL injection attacks. They happen sporadically throughout the day and last about one minute. Error logs show attempts to insert code in protected database fields, usually about a hundred attempts within that minute. We are also getting "sniffed" as bots keep trying to find additional forms.

So far, the site is holding up. During an attack, if you click a link or button, you may notice the site respond very slowly and you may get an error message about a request timeout. Wait a minute and try again. If the error persists, email to Tech Support.
