Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about it. Are you sure your site is the one that is under attack, and not some other site on the server, as this may affect you.

As said above, this is out of your hands. You need to contact your host and inform them of the problem. Also, you can CHMOD your vB files to 644 (or something similar) to stop other people getting your files when on a shared server.

Sorry, but there is no hack/mod that will ever stop ddos attacks - it's impossible. You can upgrade your server then install your own firewall to make you less likely a victim.
