Re: Dos attack against my tor node?

Another data point: according to my mrtg graphs (ie. traffic rates) a similar thing may have happened to me yesterday between 12:30 and 12:45 pm EST. Downstream suddenly saturated for what looks like 10-15 minutes when there was nobody using the network.

Unfortunately I don't have logging turned on at my firewall so I can't be sure it was a dos; I have only been running tor for a few months but that hasn't happened before.

Hi All

   I  was examining my system logs tonight and noticed something
interesting.. What appears to be an attempt to DoS my tor node. 3
separate attempts spaced about 2 hours apart all from IP's in the same
ISP (From "Pacific Internet Thailand"). I've been running the Tor node
(middleman node) for a while now and this is the first time I've seen

So my questions is:

  is this common have others seen this type of behaviour?

Thanks in advance Freemor
