Forum changelog (21st of May 2019)


(Announcement: There won't be many changes on the 22nd of May 2019 due to several reasons.)


- Security enhancements
Development of custom Apache extensions to avoid further mass registration attempts. More than 1.000.000 different IP addresses had to be discovered and blocked.
Many adjustments of the CloudFlare configuration, the local Apache (webserver) configuration, several tests.
The number of attacks decreased, but isn't over yet.
Reason: Attacks (mass registration attempts, up to 5 times per second) - https://www.cpaelites.com/Thread-Announc...per-second
Background reasons: Missing firewall/dDOS configuration data, missing updates of the previous owner, missing material of the previous owner [1] [2].

- Security enhancements
Creation of a parallel CPAElites environment on another physical dedicated server, to test and adjust the custom coded Apache modules. This avoids further crashes or downtimes related to Cloudflare on the production server.
Reason: Attacks (mass registration attempts, up to 5 times per second) - https://www.cpaelites.com/Thread-Announc...per-second
Background reasons: Missing firewall/dDOS configuration data, missing updates of the previous owner, missing material of the previous owner [1] [2].
