Technical Issues – Update

Wizbang was subject to a massive comment spam attack Sunday. To protect the server our host implemented a chron process to clean the user process at Wizbang, which was causing errors when people tried to leave comments, or when we tried to post. That script has now been stopped, as we’ve worked with Hosting Matters to prevent and/or mitigate future attacks.

Everything is (mostly) back to normal now…

Update: Things are better, but not yet perfect…

Update 2: The issue was more involved that I originally thought. Running the 2004 Weblog Awards on the same MT install as Wizbang was, in hindsight, a recipe for disaster. Thanks to Stacy and Annette at Hosting Matters for helping me identify the problem, and more importantly FIX IT!
