    So that's it.

    Some of the VPNs that I use have been very slow at times over the past few days, and some servers have gone down transiently.

    Wilders was not accessible at all for a while last night.

    One can wonder if this was the best idea that the smart brains at "cyberbunker" could come up with. Starting an attack with some help from eastern europe instead of working things out in a more professional way o_O And what good came out of this attack, nothing, absolutely nothing, other than everyone now knows it was caused by "Cyberbunker" Hopefully their customers will consider a change to another hosting company :cautious:

    Current Dutch bunker owner Bunkerinfra Datacenters has issued a statement that webhosting company Cyberbunker isn't hosting from the bunker in Kloetinge, Netherlands anymore since a 2002 'engine room' fire.
    The former 3-floor nuclear bunker does not have 5 floors, no swimming pool, there is no secret network of tunnels nor a large weapon stash (as reported by media over the last decade), according to 'Bunkerinfra' in a reaction to Dutch site Security.nl link/ NYTimes link
