4F Message board problems/IPB free problems.
Author: Raine    Date: 10/15/2007 23:24:38

Four Freedoms Message board is currently experiencing some strangeness. Please post your particular issues here and we will report it as soon as possible to alleviate the problems. Sorry guys. I know it sucks, but I hope you know we are here for all you posting needs! Blog away! Edit.... I have temporarily taken Four Freedoms offline... Please feel free to post here. This really sux. I am sorry guys. As soon as I feel good about getting 4F back up, I will do it. (that sounded dirty, didn't it?) Edit part duex: (10:36 PM, Monday night) IPB free seems to be under attack. (see inside for more details) The 4F message board will remain offline to prevent our members from this vulnerability. You can contact the staff at our links sections and we will be creating new blog posts as needed until the board is back up.

I posted my problems on the Monday blog as I discovered them.

Liv, Thanks. What you mentioned regarding IE was very helpful. Firefox acting screwy too makes me wonder what is going on with the server. I am very glad that the 4fBlog is on a separate server that the MB. So here is the sad news... I decided to take the board offline, until I can figure out what is going on. Bummer. Big time bummer. I will report info as I get it here.

Glad to help.



Why does it seem like only certain message boards have these problems? Like UNN had some server problems and had to move to a new host.

I dunno... I tenfd to thing the right wing sights use the old *Under maintenance* excuse...



:rofl:



What I do know is that whatever is goign on is not the server's fault nor ours. This is from the outside. Instead of risking our members computers... I am taking the board down.



And.. HEY!!! we still have the blog!!!

The parents of the 12--year old who was freeped are on Olbermann right now.

Evening folks....monitoring from afar. Kinda nice having admins geographically separated...I see what is happing up here, too.



Sox are trailing 2-0 in the 6th.



Whereas I loathe the Jets, I have less interest in the New York Football Giants. They are the second team of choice for many elder New Englanders (the were 'our' team before we had the Patriots up here.)

Are we continuing the non board issues on this blog, or should we continue the non board related stuff on Monday's blog?

I see other boards on IPB free are having issues as well.... So at least I know that 4F isn't being hacked directly. More to come as I get details.

Dammit! Haven't been able to log on in awhile due to so much going on, then the board craps out? One might get a complex!!

I went to IPB free message board, this is what is being said: this is being caused by the attack/trojan/virus we'll have all righted and fixed soon So as soon as I know, you will know. I am glad I turned the board off for the time being.

Hello dahlink! I shut 4F down to prevent further trojan attacks. But LesBlog is here.

I have been trying to pass the info on to others... This is an IPB problem... Gah it pisses me off.

Comment by Raine on 10/16/2007 02:06:31
for the record, AS has been previously stated, IPB hs been hacked. We shut the board down to prevent anyone from becoming infected. Please know that we want you all back... soon and often. And if anyone ever wants to start a blog of thier own... contact the staff...

Comment by Raine on 10/16/2007 02:31:44
Checked again... Still having the same issues... Sorry again.

Free software seems to have its problems. :(

Funny cause it is nothing more than an earlier version of the newest of the board software!!! I think the hackers just come after it cause it is free. IPB actually has some very very good security things going on. And now I know, having been in the dark when AAP went down... i can see things in a much dif way. I am trying to be transparent... I took the board down to prevent problems for our members. I hope that others do as well. But if they don't, I feel good knowing that we did what we could to prevent problems. :peace: (the couch is REALLY calling me!!!) Raine

I posted an update on the board. The IPBFree.com folks are aware of the problem and trying to resolve it. Disabling javascript might help, but then none of the formatting buttons will work (and will disable the buttons and timezone features here

).

Comment by BobR on 10/16/2007 14:57:30
IPBFree.com has fixed their problem, and the board is back up.

Comment by Raine on 10/16/2007 15:30:44
Four Freedoms is back up!!! Guys, we are sorry for the board being taken offline. Really I did not want to do that, but it was for the best... I know many of you got the email we sent to members, explainig why. I hope you all come back to the board. I do. It wasn't you, it was the server..

Comment by Raine on 10/16/2007 15:32:10
BTW, Thank you BobR for all the input. And for understanding what was going on. ((((( BobR ))))
