Botnet Attack

     We had a botnet attack against our web server.  This attack was attempting to enumerate user ID’s on WordPress sites hosted her.  It generated more than 512 simultaneous requests significantly slowing the web server and overloading the MySQL database.

     I have put filters in place blocking the IP space in question and normal service has been restored for everyone but the attackers.
