Post Strange attack - offline for 5 hours

My server become crazy today at 16h00 (GMT+1).

I got a lot of fat SQL request (especially in HOL), who put down the mysql service and let Apache load the server average by waiting a response. I don't know if it's spider bot or human behavior.

I had to move out the trafic to IRC, then reboot the server to let mysql rebuild it's tables, then check the log, and verify everything was ok.

We are now online 5 hours after the beginning of incident, I will now closely monitor server and scan for those badass request.
