RockyBid Under Attack Again

RockyBid just sent this email to users:

I regret to inform you that at this time we are currently suffering from technical difficulties in the form of a second malicious DDOS attack on our website and server. We will have up and running as soon as we have shielded ourselves from this attack. While not common DDOS attacks have already crippled other well known websites such as Twitter and Gmail. You can check out this website for more information on DDOS attacks and how it works I want to assure you we are doing everything possible to mitigate this attack while maintaining the integrity of our website and the security and privacy of our customers. Rest assured that due to the nature of the attack no private information is in any danger. We will reverse and re-list all auctions that conclude during the DDOS related downtime, in order to allow for a fair bidding environment.We appreciate your patience as we deal with this issue in a timely fashion. Thank you for being a part of the Rockybid family and we hope to get you bidding soon.

All the best,
