The good news is that BB4 BBQ had found someone to host their site (BadJuju) with a whopping 100 megs of bandwidth. The bad news is the reason BB4 BBQ went down and had to find a white knight is that they suffered a Denial of Service attack!

Some bozo was FTPing from her site every few seconds and used up 13 Gigabytes of bandwidth in a week. Finally she convinced her host to look into it and found this person eating up bandwidth and was able to ban him - at least from that IP address.

But not soon enough to rack up a big bill and having to switch hosts.

So webmasters be aware - check those activity logs and make sure someone isn't draining your bandwidth - and pocketbook!
