My provider is continually filtering the following DDoS attack:
Our system responded to a (D)DoS against your service with a filter.
Target address: 18.104.22.168
Attack: a Source Engine Query flood
Filter duration: about 30 minutes
I feel like this is someone attacking my server so that it does not show up on the server list. I did, however, note that a few other very popular servers have drastically lower player counts. Is this a widespread problem? Is this something that rivals the Unity exploit that we saw back on Legacy’s launch? Anyone know?
The server otherwise works fine. No real lag, crashing, etc. Just disappears from the list for awhile. Clever idea if your goal is to damage a server.
