Karchan was Under Attack

Yesterday, I got an email from my Service Provider that my server was targetted specifically in a DDoS attack. To prevent it from effecting their other customers, all traffic to the server was (temporarily) blocked.

Now, things seem to have normalized again, slightly.

I did some checking and there have been a huge number of attempted logins into the server (not in the game, but to the server itself) from a wide variety of ip addresses. In fact, those attempts are still ongoing, about every few seconds.

To the best of my knowledge, since the new install and the change of software stack, the attempts have all failed.

This might be a last desperate effort from the people who inserted the Advertising IFrame when my server was still vulnerable, but who knows?


Karchan Down

This morning, at about 01:58, Karchan went down. To be more specific, Glassfish, the application server, went down as it was short of Memory.

I have since restarted it, and provided it with an additional 400 megabytes of memory. It should run smoothly again.

However, there is a chance that there is a memory leak somewhere, slowly claiming all memory. When that happens, we will see the same behaviour.

Let me know when it does. I'll see about checking out where the memory leak is.




To anyone who is even vaguely interested in encryption and security and all that, the term HTTPS should have a familiar ring.

HTTPS is a protocol for secure communication over a computer network which is widely used on the Internet.

As of now, the Land of Karchan can be accessed using two site urls:


The last link is encrypted. Both site urls lead to the same game, so you can decide for yourself what you wish to use.


We're back,... sort of.

It is now once again possible to login and play the game and when finished log out.

This is all that currently works. I am still hard at work fixing all the other stuff.

The Big Talk function doesn't work as yet, because I haven't added the tinyMCE yet. All the other buttons seem to work as designed.

Let me know if there is anything that seems wonky (and I am sure there will be plenty of that!)


Game will be online today!

Time for an update!

I am still working around the clock, and I am currently focussing the most on getting the game running again, that we can actually play.

I expect to have something running not much later today.


Land of Karchan Hacked!

Well, for those of you who haven't noticed yet, recently the website Land of Karchan had been hacked.

As I am unable to determine quite in which way the intruders gained entry (and changed files, as far as I know only on the website part) I decided to clean the server and install from scratch.

Therefore, as for now, there is no Land of Karchan to be played.

Rest assured, I am working as hard as I can to get things back into shape.
