3.open user 13 [8B15910] (125.133.35.158), server down.

I tried blocking them with that:

iptables -A INPUT -s 125.133.35.158 -j DROP
service iptables save
service iptables start


not working.

What can I do?

Just google linux firewalls. If it isn't getting blocked by iptables though either you messed the command up or the attack changed to a different IP. Check your logs again.

Please stop saying that it is ESTsoft doing this as that is not proven, it is just guesswork and wishful thinking by a few that seems to have spread. As a business EST would be in a whole lot of trouble if they were caught doing it and i don't think any company is stupid enough to do something that could put them out of business if they are caught.

All we know is the country the attacks are coming from. Nothing else.

get other linux firewall, try blocking the ip trough your router`s firewall (if u have one)

This is only good if the attackers is using static ip address.

There are ways to reduce the risk and depending on where you host and where you live the risk could be very little to start with. Some people do want to host large services and games for their communities and will evaluate that risk and how best to minimize it, some people just don't care if they get caught and some people prefer to stay in the shadows. These things never change in the private server world.
