    no it cant be fixed, people will always be able to ddos, but it could be less severe, and yes u will be able to log again lol.

    K2 should have every prevention, they have the money for it. They just need some firewalls (they cost about 200k$) ...

    I'll simplify what Helseth means by this

    A DDOS attack in it's simplistic form, is when an attacker runs a program or command that basically asks the computer "are you there".... so to speak

    What usually happens in a DDOS attack is the attack repeatedly floods the computer with questions, which in turn uses up all the processing power of the computer (because it's constantly replying "yes i am")

    This is classed as Denial of Service, because the computer is unable to do anything, as it has to commit all of it's resources into answering the bombardment of "are you there?" questions in the millionsth.

    Hope that helps a bit better

    You would be happy to see every server with less than 100 users logged in? LOL.

    And they can't see where attacks coming from, because attackers using proxies. They are not stupid bro, they are using their mind

    There are a couple of different forms of DDOS.

    Some forms are not as simple as just blocking 1 IP address. You infect other peoples computers and gain control of their computer. When you infect lets say for example 1,000 people (that's a pretty high zombie count) you can control all of those computers to attack a single victim. That would mean they need to ban all 1,000 IPs. It would be hard to distinguish a regular user from a zomboe and it would be wrong to ban a zombie, they are unwillingly attacking. Your computer could be infected and you might be IP banned tomorrow, I am sure you wouldn't like that.

    Even if those DDos:sers are using proxies and hunreds of different pc's they can always be tracked. Atm there is no way that you could hide without leaving traces of IP flying around. No matter how good hacker you are they can always trace you.

    if they got botnet with few of thoused zombies, tracing it 1 by 1 still take ALOT of time...

    DDOS is being done on the log in server, if u cant get past through it, u cant log any server.
    And DDOS can be lessened with special traffic control software, but ofc this costs quite some money, remember last time there were being DDOS's they hired an external company to control traffic into their log in server
