Since last week, Our website  has been under DDOS
(Distributed Denial Of Service)attack by someone who goes by the name of
Ivan Alekseevich Ivanov from Khabarovsk, Russia and he demanded $3,500
to stop the attack. We ignored him and decided to try Amazon Cloud

Please beware of Russians!! I also searched the Internet for better ways
to prevent DDOS ATTACK. All I got was 'prevention is better than cure'. 
It said that DDOS happens because of vulnerable softwares/applications
running on a machines in a particular network. If there is any good
idea, please tell me here:)

First Name - Ivan Alekseevich
Last Name - Ivanov
country - Russia
