pepperstone.com is back up.
Apparently the website was denial of service attacked.
Claim that they aren't the first, that Go Markets and TradingPoint were attacked last week too.
Also the NY servers have slipped again, to 8th Oct now. The date just keeps getting pushed back, and back, and back...


Pepperstone Support: Welcome to Pepperstone. How may I help you?

daedelus82: Hi, your website was down for over 24 hours, what gives?

Pepperstone Support: Hi there

Pepperstone Support: Yes - We were under a Denial of Service attack

Pepperstone Support: Our team worked through the night to get it back u

Pepperstone Support: up

Pepperstone Support: A few other brokers are under attack right now too

daedelus82: wow.. are they only targeting the website? or the trading servers as well?

Pepperstone Support: TradingPoint and Go Markets got hit last week

Pepperstone Support: Just the website

Pepperstone Support: Not the trading servers

Pepperstone Support: The trading servers are protected by multiple firewalls/Data Points

daedelus82: cool thanks.. do you know when the NY servers will be up?

Pepperstone Support: October 8th

Pepperstone Support: We were going to send an email yesterday but this DoS put us under a bit of pressure

How do you know that ?


Their website was up briefly earlier, and I spoke to their live support.
Please see my previous post for the chat transcript.
Their website is being DDoS'd, however the trading servers are unaffected.
They also stated that the NY servers will not be up until October 8th.

About the DDOS attacks on brokers.... hackers are aware that there is big money being made by these brokers. It is apparently considered a good tactic to attack them relentlessly until they pay to stop the attacks. FXOpen had to deal with this and i was told by one of their admin that the hackers did it every month and demanded $10,000 to stop the attacks. The only way to make it stop is to pay, or beef up the systems to the point that a DDOS attack cannot bring it down....which is expensive.

Make losses, but always come out a winner at the end.
