Information

What most people don’t know is that abuse.ch for the most part is a “one-man-show”. I run abuse.ch and associated projects by myself in my spare time. In addition to abuse.ch, I have a full-time job that is very demanding. I run abuse.ch for non-profit: I do not sell any data or information. Hence I have to rely on donations and “good-will” from third parties in order to keep my projects up and running. On December 15 2014, I had to suspend services for abuse.ch and ZeuS Tracker due to some major server issues. The backend server that was hosting those services crashed unexpectedly several times. Due to this, a database got corrupted – this in turn caused irreparable damages to a few database tables. The backend server that crashed was running on very old hardware. I was not able to locate the cause of these crashes, so I figured that getting the services up and running again on the old hardware would be a really bad idea. To prevent further irreparable damages on the databases, I decided to temporarily suspend the services and look for a new home for abuse.ch and ZeuS Tracker. In the past days I have been busy with searching for a new home for abuse.ch and ZeuS Tracker. I have to say that I was overwhelmed with the vast amount of people that offered me help. I had never imagined that so many people enjoy and rely on the services offered on abuse.ch. Hence it wasn’t too difficult to find a sponsor for new servers. On December 19 2014, I was able to restore services for both, abuse.ch and ZeuS Tracker, on new hardware sponsored by PhishLabs and ThreatSTOP. I would like to thank both of them for their great support.
