Move Over (temporarily)

The attack pattern on this website is very interesting. The Russians after almost a week of persistent attempt have stopped. Of course they haven’t lost heart or accepted defeat, of that I am very sure.

And that isn’t guess, but past experience. The attempts goes on in cycle, and that indicates that these people are moving in close co-ordination with each other, like an unending relay race.

First say Russians take over and make their best attempt to break in. If they are unsuccessful, the next weak they pass on the baton to the USA and except sporadic attempts it is their territory for the duration. But they are given only a week to make the breakthrough. If they can’t then for the next week, the cap is on the head of Ukraine and then (and sometimes together) Turkey.  Once they successfully break in and deface the site I don’t know it would be on whose charge (to manage the site) or maybe they would again take turns.

This is exactly what happened as I saw during the last few weeks, even before I gave the welcome message to the Russians. After the attempts by them, last week belonged to the USA and now, atleast for, I can see both Ukraine and Turkey topping in the attempts.

This is one area I can say these people are with a total universal brother-hood. There are no so called national boundaries, nationalistic one-man-ship. They are collaborating despite being from the countries that are supposed to be on unspeakable terms, at least when they speak of each other, (they rarely do to each other) they use the epithets that are unspeakable.

Their approach gives some idea on the mindset of the people too.

The Americans are brazen and well, I should doubt their intelligence ala “Where Angels fear to tread” or may be they are in their smug universe and don’t care. Either way they belong to the same level of mental faculty.  Their attempts have been as numerous as the Russians but from a very limited number of IP addresses (In fact the most notorious, as far as I could see were from and (both in third digit, per day). 

Compare this with Russians, in their week the attempts are from hundreds of IP addresses, and that were diverse too. They have used not only many IP addresses, but many different blocks as well as service providers too. That way, they pre-empt the potential victims from making complaints at the abuse@. After all how many abuse complaints can one make? Each particular IP address makes around say 50 to 60 attempts and then asks the next one to take over. That they work in close cooperation is quite clear since while one IP is trying, the others keep silent in most of the cases, and only after this has stopped the other start. 

The Ukraine and Turkey fall somewhere in between. In fact in their allocated time, even their number of attempts too are quite low, almost negligible, compared to US and Russians. These are the people who work in same IP Address ranges, though not necessarily same IP Address. 

Let me meanwhile enjoy and watch their attempts (till it is the time they enjoy and then probably I won’t even be able to watch).

Technocrat, now with age have reached corporate management cadre. Love reading and quite a bit of movies. But both these are limited to slow and enjoyable - wine (which includes obviously technical) and dislike or rather hate the current- whiskey.
