Problems?
Has anyone else been having problems when browsing the forum. I was unable to access the forum between 6 to 6.40 today

I have also received a pop up saying "A user name and password are being requested by ht t p : //www(dot)techenclave(dot)com. The site says: "TechEnclave"
When browsing the new rulership for SCOFFING BOURGEOIS ATHEIST PIGLETS! thread. my browser also almost slows to a stop (only in that thread so far)

I had similar problems from 19:00UTC to 19:20UTC.

RE: Problems?
I think there might have been a DDoS attack. That's my early guess.

Have you had any pop ups asking for login details?

RE: Problems?
I've had similar issues this morning though from mobile as I haven't been home all day.
I did have a log in request but that is common when using my mobile browser.
Be wary of any changes made by me I guess.
I've sent a pm to Deep in he hopes that he can tell if it was random Internet bullshit or if it may have been something more serious.
If it is something more serious I think we can all pretty much figure out who was behind it.
It was probably nothing though.

I had trouble getting on as well, but it seems to be fine now.

Ive been browsing a while since i posted this thread and the new rulership for SCOFFING BOURGEOIS ATHEIST PIGLETS! thread seems to be the only one where i get that pop up. Ive done a virus scan and my end seems to be clear.

If it turns out that we indeed had a DDoS attack, it may be worth checking to see if anything is out of place.

It could be that one of the images in that thread are hosted on that server and some of those images are now in a protected directory. (a .htaccess file to require authentication before it downloads.)
