    Basically my server on my legit site has been crashing alot recently and after a load of pestering the trolls that run the server they come back with this:

    "We have detected inbound malicious traffic to your server. At this time we have placed your server under TMS our DDOS mitigation system. Currently we are seeing 100Kbps of malicious traffic being mitigated by the TMS before reaching your server."

    WTF DOES THIS MEAN!?

    Has someone tried to F' up my website or my mates website?

    They are legitimate sites that are popular and updated daily so i dont understand it!

    If anyone can help please let me know, thanks!

    Well first of all where are you hosted?

    I ask this because there are many service providers "bullying" their clients with phony problems to charge them extra.

    This.

    Sounds like a load of BS to justify their crappy service, or to "convince" you to pay them more.

    Cheers for the quick response, the server is at 'The Planet'. My mate owns his server and gives me my hosting for free.

    This is what he told me they're telling him. I dont know if they may be trying to bully him though as he has recently told me that he is moving his server.

    So you think it could the actual overall server company trying to f' us?

    Ask him where the traffic is comming from. He should be able to identify it. And then he can put legal charges.
    If he will not provide the information then he's just scamming you.
