    i dont have a good answer for you guys. what i do know is that it hit me hard i have been out of the site most of the afternoon. 502 and 504 even a friendly malware message. But why not check every lovely problem of the box right. It seems whatever it is it has hit members differently hard. Cayne has been in Contact with the support that says all looks good on their end. But clearly Everything is anything but good. More investigating from cayne will follow.

    Yeah, we're dealing with some malicious injects, due to security holes in certain (old) scripts. They are being disabled/removed as we speak. But through the years we collected a ton of crap on those servers and it will take some time to find everything. But we're on it.

    Sorry for the inconveniences :(

    The phun.org servers have apparently suffered some "code-injects" (or what's colloquially called "a hack") on a fairly substantial scale, which is why it's taking some time to clear.
    Apologies for the hang times, error messages, etc., and thanks for your patience.
    It's perhaps a reminder to look at our individual protection against malware, viruses, etc.?

    Never wrong to look at your individual protection, but in these cases the "hacks" mostly aim at the server and not the user. And an updated browser, with Windows Defender enabled should _usually_ do the job. Most of the "anti-virus protection" software only slows down your PC into oblivion and often shows "false" malware/virus warnings to make you feel like the software is protecting you from harm - even tho there is none - just so you keep on buying the software.

    I basically live online and visit a lot of sites, with potential security issues and haven't used an anti-virus software since 5+ years without an issue. Of course you should never ever install or execute any file off the internet - but I think that's common knowledge.

    I'm not saying be careless, just that common sense + windows defender keeps you safe from 99,9% of the harm out there. (this is unrelated to our incident - just had to put it out there :))

    Same here for 20+ years never use any AVS never catch any virus. Ok now there is shitty Defender shipped with Win which gives a lot false positives too. Downloading pretty much everything from net, but always from reliable scene groups and sources. Malware is bit different, the one that was served here yesterday I have to kill from task manager since the browser chrome was unusable.

    Sounds really bad...oddly enough I haven't gotten any warning, besides one Chrome warning...

    Besides that the server should now be clear of all malware - but we're still working on some RAM issues, the support thinks that's the main reason for the numerous 502 errors people receive....

    phun appears to be virtually back to normal for me, cayne, but I've got belt & braces defence that you sort of sneer at - along with the warning messages that you suggest are primarily a marketing ploy!
    Well OK, a condom isn't very sexy, but neither are STDs! ;)

    Takes a long time to load but I get it now with Firefox. No problems using google chrome. That is my update.

    Now it's at normal speeds again :Hi5:

    The forum has not been loading pretty much all day today until about an hour ago, and I've heard this from several others as well. The weird thing about it is that people can seem to access it on their phone, but not on their pc or laptop. Hopefully something can be done about this asap.
