DoS attack again…

Again we suffered a DoS attack. The Jabber services and website were down from ~10:45pm to 00:30am.

For sure we have to do something about this. We are already digging into this, also recieving feedback from other Jabber server admins. Maybe abusive Nimbuzz accounts are the reason and, if this turns out to be true, we are also thinking about firewalling Nimbuzz.

What would you think about blocking Nimbuzz? Are you having friends from Nimbuzz in your roster? Tell us your opinion.
