Information about the cyber-attack on the Enlace Zapatista webpage: http://enlacezapatista.ezln.org.mx/
This morning, around 10:30 AM, a ddos attack (denial of service) occurred.
These types of attacks are generated by automatized programs that launch thousands of simultaneous requests at the same domain (the page’s address, in this case), provoking that the server is saturated and is incapable of responding.
The company that houses the server informed us that the attack was being carried out from a large number of IP addresses. Some of the addresses identified are:
- Range 22.214.171.124, from Cameroon
- Range 126.96.36.199 from the United States
- Range 188.8.131.52, from Russia.
Before these kinds of attacks, the only solution is to disconnect the equipment.
While the technical team achieves resolving the problem of the attack on the server and given that our interest is that those who want to attend the Critical Thought facing the Capitalist Hydra Seminar do not lose the opportunity, we solicit adherents to the Sixth and the free media to help us by replicating the text of The Storm, The Sentinel and the Lookout’s Syndrome (In English) OR La Tormenta, el Centinela y el Síndrome del Vigía (En español) and also to share the pre-registration formats for the seminar.
On the other hand, if anyone of you has a proposal that might help us fight this kind of problem, we would appreciate it if you would send your ideas to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
