maybe hack my site

([msg=78609]see maybe hack my site[/msg])

avoiding my usual poetic prehistory to provide context. I got a website that I'm hosting on thousand year old hardware that no one will miss and my parents internet connection because I live in a share house and can't fuck with the router, with a $3.99 domain. Have denyhosts installed and blocking brute force attempts( yes i have ssh with a sexy login banner not explicitly threatening hackers with prosecution)

I was going to provide the link. It's pretty locked down if you ask me but I don't have the latest ubuntu server because of the hardware ( came with win 97 ) so maybe you guys could find vulns with the no longer supported system.

Now to the question after realizing i have provided my usual poetic prehistory to an extent, and you're all welcome.
I've gathered that HTS is flooded with noobs DDOSing like there is no tomorrow and my server is hosted on a personal home connection with shit all bandwidth compared to HTS, and it's my parents internet connection and I couldn't let you guys fuck with their stuff.
Am i correct in my assumptions that it would be a bad idea to let you lose with the IP?

How else are you going to have people pentest the site? It must be hosted on the internet somewhere. Once it's on the internet, it obtains an IP address. A DNS lookup is simple. In theory, if people are going to DDoS it, you can't do much. However, only accepting certain people to test your site via pm is a good idea, to mitigate the newbies.

To be honest, posting your IP here will probably be a bad idea for a different reason. For the first few days this thread is active, you'll be hit sorta hard. After that things will die down. And after that bots will crawl HTS, pick up your IP and scan the shit out of you.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.
