    There was a major DOS attack against Level3 New York which caused havoc with a lot of networks today including Comcast. Our host, Server City has taken steps to correct this and we should be back up to full speed again.

    Is this the third hack in only a short amount of time, or did I misread somewhere down the line?

    Technically none of the hacks / attacks have been directed toward MassCops they are either random DOS attacks that affect the network we are on or pain in the ass trojan worms that search the net for phpBB boards and attempt to deface them.

    I don't think that any one person or group has it in for MassCops it's just dysfunctional computer geeks with nothing better to do than to reek havoc on the net.

    I checked when stm4710 gave me a jingle, I think that was around 7-7:30ish.

    I guess it just had a mind of it's own, I installed the board in a separate directory and it worked fine, check the regular directory and it was still down, moved all of the files from the new directory to the old directory and it's back up.......

    Dunno exactly what the problem was, went to bed and everything was fine, leave you guys alone for a few hours and you break the baord.... :wink:

    ok...so was I the only one getting a mostly blank page with a message telling me to contact the adminstrator/billing for the last couple of hours when I tried to go to this website?

    ...I'm guessing not.

    Ok first off, the reason the site was suspended late last night into the morning hours was due to yet another hacking type event. The folks at Server City thought that possibly someone was attempting to hack their server via one of my scripts on masscops. They were not sure what was causing the problem and temporally suspended masscops to determine if masscops was being used as the gateway into the server.

    As far as folks showing up as banned (lil red dot) this is an issue with something in the database, no one has been banned and I will try to fix this later today.
