What Is Wrong With CDFreaks Site?

Postby TCAS on Thu Apr 13, 2006 10:21 am

Does any one know what is happening with CDFreaks these last two days?, the site is being locked and unaccessable.

I'm not sure if I'm seeing the same problems as you. This morning I was unable to see atachments in new posts, so I tried another browse (Opera) and couldn't see any attachments.

So I cleared all cookies and now can't log in. Apparently someone else keeps trying with my account and blocks access. The automatically generated e-mails I've received all name the same IP-address and it isn't the one my provider currently assigned. :o

Same problem here as well, MediumRare. Can't log in at all, IE6 and FF both. I mailed CodeKing, an admin there, and he's advised me to try again in 12-24 hours or so.

might have been hacked or something? That can really mess with a site.

It sounds like they're having hosting and/or hardware problems. Either that or they're under an attack. Maybe its those Greek guys. :wink:

I'm guessing its hardware. I did a pathping to www.cdfreaks.com and did not see any packet drops.
