We have been experiencing a DOS attack, all funds are safe though

other exchanges/services as well: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2w00yo/three_exchanges_hacked_in_24_hours/comk2rm

To which extent the funds are safe for current LPCs?
What is the security policy implemented at ccedk against threat, dos attacks and hacks?
To which extent can we rely on ccedk to be a LPC from now on?

I think the question should be what security measures Nu wants an exchange to have in order to accept the exchange to host LPCs.


This question will - once @KTm and @jmiller have stopped their operation - not be important.
Those exchanges will attract LPCs which offer the best combination of security measures, uptime, API, etc.
Exchanges that seem too risky will simply have no chance to compete with others.

Next stop Poloniex…

right now only allcoin is working correctly, poloniex doesn’t have a buy or sell walls!

we need ccedk to resume operations very soon.

As an update to DDOS attack is still happening, our head developer is working on a solution for the hot wallet. Site is mannually taken down by him, so there is no direct threat, but we have to be patience a little bit longer for the site to be back online, I am sorry to say. Patience please, I know it is hard with recent experiences, but we caught it in time to avoid any damages,so it is more a question of having a hot wallet function. I will be back with more info in a few hours, this just to keep you all updated.


thanks ronny.
this is a war :wink:

ccedk is back!

Hi @Ronny, thanks for the frequent updates. Nice to see your site back online again.

Just for clarification, was this now a pure DDOS or really an attempt to get access to your exchange wallets?

the attack has resumed, it seems.

@ronny you mentioned here that the API is not working yet.

Should I wait 1day before resuming the LPC operations?

Stronger attack occurred.

It seems a pure DDOS attack, and another came after we had a window of approx an hour, and attack was so strong that we had to take down our site again, and we are still under attack., buit as I said in twitter to cryptog, I hope the hackers will find out eventually that they are trying to open the wrong gate. It’s a waste of time consindering our hot wallet procedures, and I hope time is important to them, so they will manage to stop soon.
