|Spotlight: LOL-able DoS Attack|
Posted by: DarkXander at 08-08-2016 10:24 AM
|Someone throughout the weekend has been hitting us with a DoS with BW usage totaling a whopping ER-MAH-GERD 2.78 GB!! So when you factor in we have been hit by 14 TB in the past and not gone down, this attacker has only managed to splatter a fly on our windshield. The IDS and Firewall call it as they see it, even if its hilariously tiny.

|Political Extremism, a sad story.|
Posted by: DarkXander at 07-23-2016 01:24 AM
|Tonight i had the misfortune of a certain furry, known as Hemms, whos been banned from FA, probably for simular reasons, noticing i had made some tweets about my second ammendment rights beliefs, and such.
He immediatly began to harrass me online, make insinuations that i was suddenly a prejudiced hate monger of some kind, and then began to show his own colors, when we started refering to me and others who share my beliefs as "you people", and made comments to the effect that anyone with such beliefs also including Trump, should not be allowed to be Furrys.
Does this statement not attempt to deny us our own in-aliable freedom of beliefs, and speech? I dont comment much on politics here because its a touchy subject that many people get heated over. But this Hemms person even went so far as to hint at violence in response to my beliefs. And i expect we havent heard the last of him. He is a outright Hillary supporter, and attacks any furry who isnt it seems.
I may not agree with the beliefs of others, but i firmly support their RIGHT to their own beliefs, and Hemms wants to violate those rights, and impose his extremist level democrat beliefs on others, and shame them if they dont follow into his beliefs.
For these aggressive actions, he was banned, to prevent this chaos from spilling onto the site or escalating any further.

|Site and System Upgrades this Weekend|
Posted by: DarkXander at 07-22-2016 15:09 PM
|This weekend i will be updating the Linux OS that FurrTrax runs on, no set time yet, but when it happens, the site will be down, for possible an hour or two. Full backups will be done before hand. But if we go offline, now you all know why. Expect it late Saturday and possibly sunday, most likely in stages.

|FurrTrax and FurNation have made peace!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 06-17-2016 19:34 PM
|Its been a long time coming but we have finally straightened out, and settled our differences peacefully. The whole situation could have been handled better on my part and in the end it was all a mis-understanding between myself, and FurNation. I would like to thank the person who DDoS'd us as it was his animosity that provided the situation in which we both were able to come togeather and collaborate on a common enemy.
Heres to a successfull future to us both
EDIT: We would also like to thank Spirit Wolf of Furgather.net for serving as the mediator for this issue, he made this possible.

|Last Weeks DDoS Attacks|
Posted by: DarkXander at 06-16-2016 18:07 PM
|So we have uncovered the identity of the person who attacked this site last week, as well as several others. I wanted to corroborate the information before saying anything, and i have now verified from a second source earlier today that we have the right guy. He is the owner of another furry website no less.
We know who you are, and if you check your voicemail, you will find we have called and left you a voicemail, we have your name, address, phone number, and assorted information, and it will all be posted here on the homepage soon for all to see, unless you call us back, the number is in the voicemail. Tick Tock!

|New Feature: Recover Username!|
Posted by: DarkXander at 06-10-2016 11:27 AM
|After carefull review of the system logs, it seems literally 80% of the people who have login problems, is actually not because of their password, but rather, the system cannot find a existing username. To Combat this issue, we have 2 features now! First of which has been around for a while, You can login with your email address in place of the username!
The New feature today tho, is a tool to recover your username by using your email address on file. Simply go to the Recover Username or Password link on the main website(NOT MOBILE YET), and in the lower box enter your email address, and the system will kindly remind you of your correct username, and also give you the option to login to it, reset its password, etc.
We hope this helps people with their login issues.

|Ongoing DDoS Attacks Hitting FurrTrax|
Posted by: DarkXander at 06-07-2016 15:21 PM
|So whomever has decided to attack us with a quite large botnet of exploited WordPress Servers must really hate us, because since last friday they have been DDoS Attacking us randomly with gaps of 2-12 hours in between, but each time its the same type of attack. They seem to have roughly 5000 wordpress servers under their control, but with a few tweaks, and a brand new detection pattern from their attacks our automated defense systems(TraxWall, pfSense and CloudFlare) are mitigating it seamlessly now.
~12TB of DDoS Flood Traffic so far - 6/7/2016
154,001,149 Total Site Hits/Requests - 6/7/2016
|-includes Attack and Legitimate website hits
28,470,199 Blocked Attacks since adding new Detection pattern to our IDS, the pattern was added after 4 seperate waves of the attack had already happenned, so this number cannot be considered a grand total.
And yet were still here, online, and kickin...

|Missing Accounts - Spring Cleaning|
Posted by: DarkXander at 06-03-2016 12:00 PM
|So ive been doing a little cleaning, and i noticed there are some offenders who have 6 and 7 accounts all sharing 1 email address, if you suddenly find your account missing, it is because you were one of these offenders. We will be limiting accounts to 1 per email address, no exceptions.

|Spotlight: Furry Virtual Universe Project|
Posted by: DarkXander at 05-07-2016 18:00 PM
|FurrTrax has the server power, and is looking to setup our own Virtual world using opensim.
This is something we are looking to collaboratively manage, and we are willing to host regions for other sites as well, and set them up togeather in a grid of furry dedicated areas. As if a version of Second Life dedicated to the furry fandom, where furrys make the rules. And the biggest thing would be, everyone would get free space as long as they could justify its purpose and usage. No more need to pay $1000 for a full featured area of your own.
For those who would wish to host their own region we would also accomidate that, and allow their region to be linked in with ours.
We are looking to first assemble a list of those who would be willing to collaborate on management aspects, creation of starting content for the base regions, and those who want to contribute in other ways.
We have ~200 GB of RAM, and 32 i7 xeon processor cores at our will to do this with, and Tons of SSD storage.
