DoS attacks? Oh my!

Minatsuki, the server which hosts Kinmunity and Howlr, as well as other web properties, has recently sustained a targeted attack from a client using multiple IP addresses from internet service provider Wave Broadband (Astound Broadband). We have contacted Wave Broadband's abuse department with the relevant logs and are awaiting an investigation and response. Kinmunity takes any and all unauthorized access attempts seriously, and we will continue to monitor the scope of these unauthorized attacks. As a result of this incident, we are taking temporary measures in order to protect our server, its web properties, and our users. The following implementations are effective immediately:
  • Minatsuki will DENY any connection attempts from IP addresses involved in the attack.
  • *FangAI will treat subscribers of Wave Broadband from the following locations as high-risk users; requiring additional verification before granting access to secure resources.
    • Kirkland, WA
    • Seattle, WA
    • Bellevue, WA
    • Bothell, WA
    • Mountlake Terrace, WA
    • Shoreline, WA.
  • Users whose browsers which supply ANY information to Kinmunity which does not match their characteristics will receive a two-hour site-level IP address block and account ban.
  • *Attempts to access any web property hosted by Minatsuki, including Kinmunity, using a non-standard browser will result in a 24-hour server-level IP address block.
  • *Mismatches between user-manipulatable-information and detected characteristics (i.e - falsified user agent, browser supplying other invalid information) will result in a 7-day server-level IP block.
The individual(s) behind this attack have been identified by Trust & Safety staff and issued the appropriate cease and desist notices. Further unauthorized access attempts from the parties involved will be treated as criminal acts and if necessary, referred to law enforcement. We have no reason to believe any user or site data has been compromised in these attacks, and are taking proactive measures to prevent a disruption of service. Thank you for understanding.

* measures marked with an asterisk are intended to be temporary

Was the attack specifically targeting Otherkin sites, or was it a general strike on every site hosted by the Minatsuki server?

The attack was specifically targeted at Minatsuki. I cannot provide further information at this time, other than the fact no data was compromised and that the proper authorities are involved.
