We’ve been attacked by some hackers today from
We’ll be investigating this further, and contact the appropriate authorities.

The details of the attack are: 

IP Address:
Reverse DNS:

They tried to see if the server is vulnerable to SQL injection

Query: categoryIdentity=’%20+%20myValue%20+%20′’ + elementAPageName + ‘.cfm?categoryIdentity=’%20+%20myValue%20+%20’

It wasn’t!

As a final attempt they started flooding the server with countless of requests.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
