To get your computers back.. boot save mode with networking, unplug the internet.. check the router logs to see if there was anything abnormal... Then begin the cleaning process..

Just make sure that when you are in safe mode with networking your internet is not running into the router..otherwise you are just asking for more problems.

yes it's confirmed. considering i had connections from zombies from just about every single ISP in the world

edit: it was a SYN flood to be exact basicly what it does is it spams your connection so you cant open new valid connections using bad protocol implemented in the windows tcp/ip stack

  :angry5:  Looks like some @#[email protected]#$%!! has stung you with TCP Flooding.  The connection request is sent from a spoofed address and before the ACK can be sent another request to another spoofed addr is sent.  Your PC works itself to a nub trying to comply with all the requests and it never gets any return confirmations since they don't exist..  Eventually your mem gets loaded and the system gets locked up.  From what I've seen the trick doesn't cause any permanent harm when all is reset.

I wish these hacker SOBs, spammers and virus makers would get lives!!

ok

so if u disconnect your router from the web and u had tried to access the website in your router ( the administrator website) it should all have worked because the attack would no long go anywhere since u were not with a IP

did u try that?

With the newer routers you dont have to worry about SYN attacks.. With SPI these attacks are useless..

The DI-714P+ also features a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall which helps to protect against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks such as SYN Flood, Spoofing, and Ping of Death.

The Router protects your PC from most known Internet attacks with a powerful Stateful Packet Inspection firewall.

The only real catch is that the router has to be newer..
