I don’t think Dan will mind if I point this out, as it is not the first time this has happened at this “catch-all” media site for media around North America and beyond.
I knew something was up last night when I tried to log in and it sent me to some weird unrelated site. They are still down as of 4pm today. I know a number of us that post here, also post there, or used to anyway…
EDIT: the website is radiodiscussions.com (plural)
BTW, Oregon has a weak presence on this site and this obviously has to do with the strength of pdxradio.com!February 24, 2017 at 12:27 am #27456
Still down as of 12:26 AM PST. They appear to have some major problems.February 25, 2017 at 5:48 pm #27487boisebillParticipant
hard-core-dx(dot)com has also been hacked.February 26, 2017 at 3:07 pm #27504
Watch out–If Motozak3 were to read this thread, he would clarify that “hack” is not the correct word to use. He would implore that you use “cracked” or “vandalized.” 🙂February 26, 2017 at 8:45 pm #27517ChicoParticipant
Still FUBAR as of 830pm Sunday night. That is a long period of “site maintenance.”February 26, 2017 at 9:38 pm #27521
Yeah, I think this site is in serious trouble, though I have contributed greatly. It isn’t a bad site, but they do tend to be somewhat restrictive as to what can be posted where and why. I hope they can figure it out, but I don’t predict they will.February 27, 2017 at 1:31 am #27524February 27, 2017 at 9:05 pm #27539Randy_in_EugeneParticipant
That Hard Core DX link just gave me a message in Chrome that the site may contain malware.February 27, 2017 at 9:21 pm #27541
Now approaching 6 days of being down. I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but 6 days is too long to correct their problems. I don’t wish this, but I think this site may be done for good, IMO, or if they are able to comeback, who will still be there? Again, IMO. I hope they can rebound, but it doesn’t look good.February 28, 2017 at 2:59 pm #27556ChicoParticipant
Thye have risen from the dead. Now if they STAY risen….February 28, 2017 at 3:53 pm #27558Jeffrey KoppParticipant
Mozilla Firefox won’t display that URL, gives me “reported attack page” warning.February 28, 2017 at 4:54 pm #27567
Jeffrey, are you referring to http://www.radiodiscussions.com? Because they do appear to be back. However, they are saying almost nothing about the long outage. Just “we have upgraded our performance and security”, paraphrasing.March 1, 2017 at 9:35 pm #27604
.March 2, 2017 at 5:24 pm #27630
And guess what, they are down again this afternoon, atleast for the past several hours. Now getting a 404 error. Whatever that means, but can’t be good.March 2, 2017 at 6:12 pm #27633
404 is the dreaded “file not found” error, in Web server parlance. If this is part of the damage caused by the people who breached the site’s security, I hope that the site’s administrators have adequate backups.
