Apparently the ronpaul2012 website was attacked by an attempted cyber attack earlier tonight. Thankfully the cyber-attack was blocked and donations are back on track...

Apparently someone doesn't want Ron to raise all that money! :tongueout:


Donations look to hit at least 2 million by noon tomorrow! Not bad for 24 hours!

The stupid is strong with you.

I saw nothing at the link you posted to indicate that the RP website was attacked. Was this a not so subtle ploy to get more traffic?

Please provide proof of the attack.

Edit: Did some quick research and it appears that the servers may have not been up to the task due to the high volume of traffic. I will wait and see. As for RP I'm glad he's getting his message out, the establishment needs to hear him, but I still don't think he's presidential material.

Where is the story about the attack? Any chance this is a false alarm? Cyber attacks are illegal. Any story about this being reported to the authorities?

I checked his website and there is no mention of a cyber attack.

Why would the media acknowledge something that he hasn't even acknowledged?

I guess Ron Paul is either ignoring himself or his supporters are a little...:crazy:

I don't have a hard-line to campaign headquarters! But I think it goes without saying that they probably reported this to the authorities...

Here is another article talkng about the money-bomb and attempted cyber attack..

This impressive fundraising feat was achieved despite a cyber-attack being launched against the campaign website during the online money bomb, shutting down the site for at least a few hours before it was restored.

Not a single reputable source has reported this alleged crime.

Not a single neutral source has reported this two-bit hoax.

If you Google it, you'll only find lunatic fringe sources like Infowars, PrisonPlanet, AboveTopSecret, and some more obscure tinfoil blogs regurgitating the same line.

Either it didn't happen at all, or it's a cheap imitation of the Reichstag fire; some troll in his mom's basement trying to make history and save the world before school starts again.

Condoned by Ron Paul's campaign, they must either prove it or confess to the coverup.
Which is it? Liar or not? No third choice.

Reality or Ronulism?

I'm just real curious. If it was a hacker or cyberattack, who was behind it?
Without a complaint being filed and an investigation being conducted, I'm wondering if maybe it was something simpler, like the servers crashing under the strain of legitimate traffic or some other technical difficulty.

If they crashed under the strain of legitimate traffic, that would be a pretty good indication that he had a lot of support.

Anyway, it's early in the story, I'm sure more details will be coming out soon so that we know what happened

I really don't think it should be a huge story... Many websites can have attempted attacks against them every day and it doesn't make the news...

Maybe it was a false alarm and they thought the sight was being attacked, or maybe it was just overwhelmed with traffic..

Either way, the site got back up..

WTF??!!???

If there WAS an attack, that would be HUGE news. We should all be informed about who was behind it, so we could help make them sorry for what they have done.

but if the campaign only paid other people for news websites to say there was a cyber attack, when they were wrong, without paying for an explanation.... well, that would be an integrity problem. Especially if they didn't pay to post the truth after they had paid to post a mistaken assumption.
