Does anyone else have this problem?

  • Ever since the recent  Ddos attack on Cathinfo a couple of days ago, I cannot get to the site, no matter which search engine I use.( Brave, Chrome,, Edge, etc)
    . the message I get is “this site can’t be reached”.I have no problem going to other sites- the computer is working normally otherwise.I can get into Cathinfo on my iPhone without any problems.
    Any ideas as to what to do about it?

  • Try changing your DNS settings. It's most likely your ISP. If you're getting to CathInfo from your phone on LTE It's because you have a different IP and DNS.

  • Another poster also got blocked after the DDOS.  I’m guessing Mathew blocked some IP ranges in response and you may have been a casualty.  IM or PM Matthew with you IP and he can unblock it.

    So you were the unintended double effect.

  • This happened to me after one of these attacks months ago. My IP was banned along with the IPs of the attackers. I emailed Matthew and he fixed the problem right away.

  • I will be writing a new script soon -- I figured out a way to block only the real hammerers of my server. Right now, anyone the Router claimed was "DoS attack" got added to the blacklist -- even if it was only 1 entry! 

    I was being thorough, sure, but it brings a huge chance of false positives, with little-to-no upside.

    But I need to write a script to do this automatically, which will take me a couple hours. If I wasn't so busy today, I'd do it right now. It will probably be done by the wee hours of Sunday morning.

  • Ok, anyone who was blocked by accident should be able to access CathInfo again.

    I wrote a new script, which is a bit "smarter" in who it decides to block.
