For the past two days jya.com has been under attack
by the Korea Information Security Agency


which has set up (or allowed) a couple of robots to issue a
sustained  flood of requests for the same three files, one per
second, which has nearly stopped access by others.

We've written the <webmaster@kisa.or.kr> to no effect.
The phone listed at the KISA web site does not answer.
A robot exclusion file has not worked.

Any suggestions for ways to ebola the invaders? We filed
criminal charges with the international cybercrimes tribunal
but do not expect rapid deployment of their cooping cops --
spooned with KISA's.
