    Defacement mirror Alldas.de is looking for a new home after its ISP
    was subject to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack over the
    The Syn-flood attack, which lasted 24 hours, against German ISP
    Kvalito had a severe effect on the service it was able to provide to
    all its customers, making the web sites it hosted unavailable. Exactly
    what provoked the attack is unclear, but Kvalito is clearly blaming
    A posting on Alldas.de said that Kvalito ultimately decided to "pull
    the plug on Alldas.de more or less" on Saturday, stripping it of email
    and filtering its traffic so that it could only receive http.

    quit. Alldas.de will have to move home for the second time in just a
    To its credit, Alldas.de has made quiet clear what it needs from any
    perspective future landlords.
    ISPs should be able to handle a growing volume of traffic that has
    reached 300GB/month, deal with 10 flames per month about port scanning
    - though Alldas.de has offered to answer those on its own - and
    tolerate the occasional DDoS attack.
    After Attrition.org decided to get out of the defacement archiving
    business last month (after decided it was too much hassle to continue
    as a hobby), Alldas.de has become the only game in town. Any admins
    out there keen to save this worthwhile service can find more
    information here.
