Thread: Just about every week, can't get to Care Cure Community

  1. #1

    Just about every week, can't get to Care Cure Community

    About once a week, at random, not at the same time each week, I can't get on to the Care Cure Community using Firefox or Safari for about 2-3 hours at a time.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Is the site regularly down at random, once a week, for some kind of maintenance?

    All the best,

    I asked Jim about this, and he said that since this site is hosted on a Rutgers University server, if their firewall protection system detects an attempt at invasion/hacking, it automatically takes all of the servers off line until it can be sure that the attack is protected against.

    Rutgers servers are continually being attacked, it is crazy.

    My previous 'go to' spot, for a learning disability I have, was also under constant attack. I was friends with Admin, and he had a constant battle. I don't know for sure why he ended the forum, but the spam sure didn't make his job enjoyable.

    I haven't experienced the problem you describe GJ.

    I thought this was an interesting NPR piece on an experiment to see how long it takes for a computer to get hacked / attacked. I can't imagine the constant vigilance it takes to run a website and appreciate the CC webmasters work.

    Since Stephen will be working on things tomorrow, just wanted to post the messages I got recently when I couldn't access Care Cure Community.

    Trying to access Care Cure Community the afternoon and early evening of Jan 1, 2017,I got as message: “502 Bad Gateway.”

    The evening of Jan. 2, 2017, I got a message: “Database error, The database has encountered a problem.”

    Are these some of the messages I should get when the site/system has gone down because of the firewall protection system has detected an attempt at invasion/hacking?

    Oh, I thought the site got overload on New Years Day, when all the bored people tried to get into the site. I was real bored and tried to get in to post it on the Boring Thread. Couldn't get in. I coulda died.
