    See if it continues now- I upped the memory limits which were likely set too low for the boards.

    The error you are getting is not from the bots at this point [​IMG]

    Thanks

    I was thinking Debeers or C&C. [​IMG] Hopefully just a random attack!

    QUESTION FOR LESS

    Hey Less, question.....

    It all seems fine now, but this morning when I would click on anything, the bottom left corner that flashes the web address (i.e. "waiting for, or transferring from betterthandiamond") actually said waiting for or transferring from snipershide.com?

    It happened multiple times this morning in different threads. Anything to be concerned about?

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    This is the first I've been able to get on today. Even 10 min ago pages were not loading. Earlier it was the 'site down for maintenance' message.

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    This is due to your DNS not rolling over so you were actually going to our old server. (if you see the down for maintenance, its the old site which was left locked so no one would accidentally post there).

    Everyone won't see the 'new' site until 4:30PM PST today as all the internet name servers will all switch by then to pointing to our new server.

    Hope that helps,
    Less

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    We have a securi scanner checking our site constantly to verify the boards are clean and nothing detected at this point...so this snipershide issue is more likely something resident on your own computer would be my guess.

    You might want to download and run PrevX on your computer to see whats there. Most of the scamware will sit on your computer and intercept your browsing so that may be what is going on.

    Hope that helps,

    I just saw the other post you made explaining. Thanks Less. Sorry your site got attacked. May the culprit be inflicted with itchy, smelly and difficult to eradicate fungus in his/her under-drawers.

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    Thanks for your reply Less. I just downloaded and scanned with PrevX and it found 0 bad files? I don't know what it was, but at least I don't see it anymore.

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    YES!! That is what I was referring to "snipershide"! I see that too on some slow-loading threads. It definitely isn't something from my pc either.

    Re: QUESTION FOR LESS

    I'm still having problems with the same message I posted about last night. I can get on for a few minutes and then I'm booted off for a bit and repeat.

    It seems to have smoothed out. I haven't had a problem for an hour or so.

    Seems to be happening again, the site has been available off and on today. Is this happening to anyone else?

    The server might be under attack by the same competitors ... err... I mean hackers. Really stinks for Less and BTD. I am certain if that is the case they are working on it now.
