Good morning all
So once again, apologies if anyone experience any downtime yesterday but it was imperative that we rolled out a few additional security measures to all sites due to an ‘increasing memory load’ on the server causing it to become unresponsive.
To prevent this spike in memory usage in the future, we have implemented a “maximum failed login attempts” limit, where an IP address will be blocked after 3 failed attempts, there is also a limit of how many connections 1 IP address can have open at any one time, and there are other Firewall and spam preventatives in place.
We thank you for your patience.
