Running from my job to my bus stop while having my phone in my hands trying to fend off a cyber attack while my hands are nearly freezing and its raining like hell.

Sometimes my job is just fucking awesome.

    I love days like that, it’s rewarding and challenging at times. Slow days are repetitive and bore me. Hope your day lightens up and you get it all figured out!

    Oh man I forgot that, you and @linux must have witnessed lots of cyber attacks, but how could you manually defend, I mean I'm sure you guys have firewall, monitoring, and some sort of alert when sudden event happens

    @gitpush Tbh it's not that fancy at all but well, technically I was fending of an attack so yeah haha.

    Firewall somehow didn't pick it up right and that's when I come in :P

    I’ve always wondered, how do you detect cyber attacks? And once you’ve detected them how can they be mitigated?

    The only time it rains like me it is playing Slayer on the background.

    @JoshBent For ddos attacks we use a country wide mitigation solution, as for this attack, it seemed like (not a ddos) shitloads of resources were being requested which caused a dos and manually had to get the offending ip addresses and kick them out through the firewall :)

    @linuxxx so you essentially null route him, while redirecting the ddos to hardware solutions?

    That sounds like a scene from Mission Impossible.
