I did follow up on the post, and fixed the permissions on the files, but 
was busy late this afternoon and so wasn't able to see if the changes 
had made any effect. Looking now (about 10 hours later), it seems the 
changes haven't made any effect.

I would feel a lot better if this process was documented somewhere, so I 
didn't have to sit and guess what stupid thing I had missed, and not 
knowing what I'd missed, not be in a position to fix it.

Or alternatively, a quick message to say "we're up to our eyeballs in 
ddos, please hold we'll back get to you".
