  1. That was going to be my other suggestion. Probably rate limiting or max concurrent connections set on an untrusted port.
  2. Any error messages or does the console just halt, as in no commands can be run?
  3. What I would normally ask people in this situation: When did this start? When was the last time it happened? Does it happen in intervals or is it random? Does it happen when something on the server itself happens? (ie, server crash?) What are the laptop specs? Are you using an SSD or spinning disk? Is Server 2022 running bare metal or a VM? If a VM, what hypervisor are you running it on, also Type 1 or Type 2? Did this start occurring from a fresh installation or after an update? Wired or Wireless? What are your NIC devices? (ie, Intel Gigabit Ethernet, etc) What make/model of Modem/Router/combo/etc? Are you using NAT? Are you using a proxy? What are Firewall settings and Port Forward settings? AV/Endpoint Protection products running? If so, do you have exceptions in place to not scan the server directories and executables? Last but not least, does Event Viewer > System/Application logs show anything for this?
  4. sweet, now i can link my onlyfans
  5. One of the first objectives they went after was destroying the dams controlling the flow of water to Crimea. Not 100% successful down the entirety of the river, but still one of their primary targets.
  6. San Andreas Multiplayer (SAMP)
  7. I was thinking about doing something similar in AWS for several other game servers piping information into CloudWatch monitoring which would also kick off autoscaling as needed. I'm interested to see where you take this.
  8. Getting close to taking my CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exam, so studying for that. It's about in the same league with CISSP, but more focused on the technical. Closing on the end of the course and I am getting into the juicy stuff (SQL Injections, XSS, CSRF, etc). I've found that after I get this cert I want to explore more red team infosec side stuff.
  9. Back at old org, different company. Long story short, got bait and switched at one job on telework. The other one wasn't working with our COVID situation and overall just toxic. Rather than keep kicking the can down the road, I figured it was a good idea and go back to where I was valued, and where I earned my respect and reputation. They also worked with me to get 100% fully telework status, so when the kids' daycares close for COVID exposure, I won't have to fight tooth and nail to take responsibility of my own kids. I took a pay cut, but sometimes money isn't everything.
  10. COVID-free and somewhat back to normal.
  11. Reseat and clean contacts? I would do that as a last resort, but it's very rare the contacts on newer RAM gets dirty.
  12. Daughter's day care had exposure to COVID, closed for two weeks and my daughter tested positive. Now fighting with my employer over the week I had to take off for being sick and now this COVID thing back to back as I need to quarantine/telework and also provide child care for my kid who can't go to day care.
