Kinmunity was attacked.

Today, between 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM, Kinmunity was effected by a targeted Distributed Denial of Service Attack against our server. This attack as mitigated by OVH's infrastructure. We have received notification from OVH that the attacks have subsided (recv. 07/29/2020 3:00 AM). However, before the attacks begun, a troll account called Sextoy registered to the site and repeatedly posted our public IP address, in a failed attempt to intimidate our staff team. The posts were automatically censored by FangAI, a component of Kinmunity's security system. The attacks began shortly after. It is important to note: this was simply a DDoS attack, which is an attack intended to bring a site offline for a period of time. There was no data loss or security compromise involving users or content.

This attack is currently under investigation by Kinmunity and OVH. Upon the conclusion of our investigation, if identifiable suspects are uncovered, we will involve US Law Enforcement. We will not tolerate attacks on our infrastructure, community, or our users. We have forwarded the IP addresses, email addresses, and usernames involved in the attack, and associated with the user "Sextoy", to our third party security partners to ensure they are added to relevant blacklists.
