Blackblogs.org announced that they have changed their settings and they’re now back online.

Blackblogs experienced a heavy DDoS attack and their upstream provider null routed their IP – meaning blackblogs.org and it’s
subdomains were unreachable.

Here’s the email message they sent:

We’re happy to announce that blackblogs.org can be accessed again!

We did experience a heavy DDoS attack and our upstream provider null routed our IP – meaning blackblogs.org and it’s
subdomains were unreachable.

It was not trivial to find a solution but for now we changed our setup and will see if it holds future attacks.

Of course we can not guarantee that this won’t happen again as we host many politically explosive blogs – but therefore we are here.

If there will be further DDoS attacks in the future please note that this targets the public facing side of blackblogs.org, not the
server itself. This means no data gets lost even if the website is unreachable at this point.

Keep on fighting!
