⚠ DDOS attack on Blender servers

The Blender.org servers have been suffering a DDoS (Denial of Service) attack, resulting in Blender.org subdomains being not or deficiently accessible at the moment.

The Blender Foundation is working on it. In the meantime here are some workaround links:

You can still download Blender from these official mirrors:

Documentation mirror: https://download.blender.org/ftp/dan/mirror/manual-dev/

Source code: https://github.com/blender

I knew they were down, but I didn’t know it was because someone is actually trying to attack the BF.

Before anyone asks, it’s probably not Autodesk (even though some here like the idea of them being the whipping boy).

Oh, ok, i was misreading the OP and thought they where targeting Blenderartists.org not Blender.org.
The latter seems to be like crushed under the weight of the attack - I can’t reach it.

Not the first and won’t be the last,I don’t think any big company would do this probably some other “users” who are envious.

WTF is this ??? :rage:
who could want this server/site to be down ???

seriously admins and mods, would you have IPs or IP ranges to give us ? 8-D

Risking a couple years in prison just to cause a cyber traffic jam, that’s a bad deal maan.

Someone probably got mad that her bug did not get fixed on the same day of reporting it.

not a cyber jam ^^ just a… requiring access on attacking IPs ^^ :stuck_out_tongue:

The net is equal maan. if you’re attacked, you can attack. and if you’re wise, you’ll make your attack look like a self attack :stuck_out_tongue:

Am sorry. I can bear and understand govs servers kneeling, intras breaking but… seriously, BA and its sequels/prequels… what’s the object ??? 8-o

LOL !!! i guess this is the most funny answer XD

EDIT: and a good idea BTW !!! :stuck_out_tongue:

Not BA. Blender proper, with its subdomains, including developer tracker.

What kinda sad pathetic lil shit would DDOS a site for open source software?
