Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-10815) Please unblock IBM Rochester addresses from website access
Date Fri, 20 Nov 2015 20:06:11 GMT
Kurt Altmann created INFRA-10815:

             Summary: Please unblock IBM Rochester addresses from website access
                 Key: INFRA-10815
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-10815
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Website
            Reporter: Kurt Altmann

Based on IBMs discovery of source IPs that were causing JMETER access of apache.org,   (documented
in now-closed INFRA-10757) and correcting those scripts,  IBM is requesting the revert of
the block that was put in place.  It should also be noted, that it was discovered by the same
people who made the mistake - that JMETER , when downloaded from the site - came with a DEFAULT
parameter that was set to apache.org.  It was the users neglect to change that default - which
led to the traffic storm to apache.org.  You may want to consider not having the site default
be apache.org. We also sent an email to root, not knowing process to request the revert of
block. Please let me know if questions.
