Hacked?

Unread postby Jumbo » Mon May 30, 2011 12:33 pm

After ~5 seconds on the front page, it redirects to something called searchdiscovered.com or 5gigs.net.

I don't think there's a virus on my machine, so is something wrong with the site?

I got it too. Also, my bookmarks don't work anymore.

They're bookmarked as theclevelandfan.com, but typing http://www.theclevelandfan.com brings me here. I'm assuming all I need to do is update my bookmarks.

EDIT: Ok, Now theclevelandfan.com is working, and the www one isn't. Weird.

All good. Something with some kind of change we had to make with our nameserver.

Okay so the error it is forcing on my phone is that when I go to theclevelandfan.com it is auto-redirecting me to www.theclevelandfan.com.

Then I get the error.

I'm at a loss as to how I may assist sir.

Would it be beneficial to you, the visiting message board poster, for me to forward your issues and concerns to a qualified IT professional?

I'm personally wondering if endless hours of the site being unavailable to me might just not be the big break I was looking for. Short of hitting the Powerball or Mega Millions it sounds like the luckiest break of all.

You've seen the NBA thread. Am I lying?

You may have a point.

Although I would rather lose computer access than phone access. I'm not tempted to reply to morons via phone.

Ahh....I see you hit a couple threads between responses.

FWIW: this bug has been fixed, no thanks to Peeker who is the worst site mod of all time.

It was my behind-the-scenes work that fixed it.

You're welcome.

Next time something like this happens send me a PM or an email and I'll get right on it.

It has to do with megabites and RAMs and bandwidth and other digital sounding stuff. It's kind of technical so I don't really need to get into it.

As I recall there were servers and cookies involved too but no one offered me any of that. No big deal as I can grab my own snacks but if there are servers and cookies I have to imagine it takes a while to fix and is probably pricey.
