fixed. the "Who's Online" table was filled due to an overly aggressive site indexer, which presented results similar to a DDoS attack. Some site configuration settings were modified in an attempt to prevent that from happening again.

JAISP, thanks for quickly reporting this

Thanks ruben laugh

The source IP range is GEO-IP located within Hong Kong which is DDoSing the host directly, again.

I've GEO-IP blocked the IP address range :/ this time, all of Asia.

UBBDEV is hosted on a very old untouched shared server (over a decade old) with limited ram, and is still running PHP 5.4, and a combination of other outdated items which makes it easily susceptible to these things. Hopefully some of today's tweaks will put a cap on it for good this time.

Blocked China at the CDN level, and increased the security level on the firewall; hopefully these combined with Isaacs earlier updates should ease things back to normal.
