Our storage provider Wasabi just published an update on the incident of the last three days. Currently their service is completely down. They expect there to be at least one hour of downtime (starting at 21:30 UTC).
In the meantime mastodon will be affected directly:
- it is impossible to reliably upload media files to our instance
- the server is unable to fetch remote media files
- you client devices are unable to retrieve already published media files.
Maintenance of large software projects, mastodon Show more
Wow, there are so many open issues for Mastodon on github. And so many are super valid.
Hard to imagine managing (or even contributing substantially) to a project so large. Any open source devs have insights about issue management, triage, division of responsibility, etc when there's such an overwhelming amount of engagement / requests?
Thanks to all the fediverse maintainers and admins and mods! This shit is clearly a ton of work
Due to an error with our upstream network provider, https://uelfte.club was unavailable via IPv4 for several hours.
We like to apologise and thank you for your patience.
@chr thank you for the hint. We'll try! 😄
@club Today those account started spamming links to possible harmful or illegal content. Please do not click on those links! 🚨
We will investigate the origin of this spam attack and hopefully can take actions to prevent future spam.
If there are other instance #administrators out there experiencing the same behavior (empty bot registrations) feel free to contact us if you have further information.
Yesterday and today multiple user accounts were created on this instance and instantly marked as bots, just sitting there and doing nothing (at first sight at least). It is unknown what their purpose is.
We investigated these accounts and found out that every account has been opened by the same IP-subnet linked to a company from the Seychelles.
We are going to block this IP-range and publish the range to be transparent in our actions.
The safety of our users is very important to us.
