We were also attacked by Annonymous a while back, but when they failed to accomplish anything, they changed targets. I guess that counts too.


Good for you. A few others were not as lucky.


I'm not sure how anyone would actually know they were unsuccessfully attacked by anonymous. There are plenty of wannabes out there. The only real way to tell is if the attacker is actually unmasked and investigated.

You can tell if you are running a decoy server. If they get on the decoy and attempts to break in cease, you can chalk that one up as as thwarted attempt.

Trust me, it's a known thing. Can't go into details, but we definitely were unsuccessfully attacked a while back, and it was definitely that group. Any more than that would violate NDAs, but there's no doubt on this one.

I think that is the limitation of the discussion on this topic: if you really do something about security, you are not allowed to talk about it, and even less share what happened or did not happen and with what outcome.

We use scanning software against our sites and we have also had third parties run scans and other penetration attempts. From this we have made a number of improvements to our security layers.

The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of arrival.
