ISAB Engineering Team Implements User-Agent Block to Mitigate DDoS Attacks

The ISAB Engineering Team has taken action to mitigate DDoS attacks on their website. They have identified a set of user-agents responsible for the majority of the attacks and have decided to block them, which includes Android 4.1.1, Android 4.3, Chrome versions 14.0, 31.0, 35.0, 37.0, 40.0, 41.0, 45.0, 5.0, and 6.0, Dalvik/2.1.0, and Opera/9.80. The team prioritizes the security and stability of the website and apologizes for any inconvenience to legitimate users. They ask the community to report any suspicious activity on the website.

ISAB Engineering Team is committed to providing a secure and stable online experience for our community. As part of this commitment, we continuously monitor and analyze our website's security logs to identify and address potential threats.

Recently, we have identified a significant number of DDoS attack attempts coming from a specific set of user-agents. After careful analysis, we have determined that these user-agents are likely only being used for DDoS attacks and not for legitimate human visitors.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to block the following user-agents:

We apologize to any legitimate users who may be affected by this decision, but we believe that the security and stability of our website must take precedence. According to our logs, the proportion of legacy device users is fairly low.

We would like to remind our communities that if you notice any suspicious activity on the ISAB website, please do not hesitate to contact us. Your help in keeping our website secure is greatly appreciated.
