I have a situation. A couple of my forums are under constant DDoS attacks at the minute. And this seems to happen on and off every few months.
I've switched to a decent hosting provider with Arbour protection, use CloudFlare, and have various systems and processes in place. But every now and again when I weaken security (to enable things like tapatalk to work again etc) it isn't too many weeks before the attacks start again. It knocks off all my websites, and we turn on all the strict rules again, and it damages a % of natural genuine traffic.
I'm trying to find who to report such a situation to in the UK. But there literally appears to be nobody. At least not without receiving a threat for ransom of some sort along with it. SOCA or whatever they're called in the UK now only want to know about it if it's part of a much bigger attack in some way, and don't really care if it's just attacking my sites. Local police can't do anything without a thread of some kind.
Are there any ways (above or underground) that I can try and trace the attackers? Does anybody have this issue and has managed to report it to somebody?
Can anybody help at all? Or at least give me somebody to chat to..?
