Unicode / XML Westminster Leningrad Codex - Server attacks

Postby cvkimball » Mon Apr 30, 2018 7:19 am

The Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Codex at

https://tanach.us

has been attacked twice in the last month from eastern Europe. These attacks took the server down and caused a loss of service. New shields are now in place, however, further attacks are likely.

Please contact me at mail@cvkimball.com if the server goes down or if the site becomes inoperable.

Please, also, keep in mind that a backup site is available at

https://cvkimball.com/Tanach .

Hi Chris,

What on earth would someone have to gain from attacking the online WLC?

Seems somewhat pointless :/

Possible reasons:

1. Practice for attacking other sites.

2. Don't like the site's content.
