maybe i'm going around this badly, i'm saying the more creative ones try to find a way around it, most companies don't care or it's gotten to the point where they can't do anything about it anymore because of the read times. i don't th

Site News: Funio having issues

at 14:11 - 16th, April 2013
For about a week now there's been a major attack on Wordpress sites all over the internet. Supposedly, it's an attempt to make one hell of a botnet of some kind.

From Arstechnica

Security analysts have detected an ongoing attack that uses a huge number of computers from across the Internet to commandeer servers that run the WordPress blogging application.

The unknown people behind the highly distributed attack are using more than 90,000 IP addresses to brute-force crack administrative credentials of vulnerable WordPress systems, researchers from at least three Web hosting services reported. At least one company warned that the attackers may be in the process of building a "botnet" of infected computers that's vastly stronger and more destructive than those available today. That's because the servers have bandwidth connections that are typically tens, hundreds, or even thousands of times faster than botnets made of infected machines in homes and small businesses.

As you guys know, I write my own CMS, but this does not stop this site from being affected by things happening to the server. Especially since it's a shared hosting at Funio.

Now, Funio has been pretty upfront with me about the issues but they said everything was fixed last week Thursday or Friday. I don't know about you guys but I'm getting a lot of errors when surfing the site, mainly Internal Errors. So whatever 'maintenance' they're doing right now seems to be affecting us.

I've been complaining to them and they are working on something but won't tell me what.

Hopefully it'll be over soon and things will go back to normal. In the mean time, I'm getting a little tired of having site issues that are really because of the hosting company and their servers, so I'm in the market for another host.

Let me know if you guys are having issues with the site. If you are, then I'll need to know what you were doing and what happened. Screen shots would also help! :)

Haven't had too many issues, only an occasional error when i try to see the comments. Clicking on it again worked. The main thing i've found is the site is slow loading posts with a lot of comments, takes a while to load the movie post.
