We suffered a DDOS. The volume of traffic was sufficient to keep us from handling it in Arc like we always have before. Simply accepting and dropping all requests not from our office required 45% CPU utilization.

I'm fixing things as I find they're broken. Please let me know if I've missed anything.
Edit: Yes, I know about and will fix all the SSL resources. Like yours, my Chrome window was also a portal to the '90s for a bit.
Edit Again: Your SSL resources should now be happy. Let me know if I missed any.
