Malware, Spyware, Virus Attacks
In the month of December 2014 our website was attacked twice. According to InternetLiveStatsthere are over a billion websites listed on internet. So why us?
The first attack came from Italy and the last one was from Russia. It is more likely the attack was random and could have hit any website. We have since , with help sucuri blocked IP and proxy IP addresses from major hacking nations like Russia, China, Ukraine. They can still land our site, but they can not register, buy or comment. Hard decision if you consider not all are hackers.
