Curious why was the message board down? Was it hacked? Wouldn't surprise me since the message board isn't a secure site to protect people in the first place, why I ask because this isn't the first time this has happened this year, and would like an answer regarding the security of this site since no Mod or Admin responded to me the first time I asked.

The most frustrating part was simply not knowing when it would be back online. We're in the middle of the Stanley Cup Finals, fantasy leagues are drafting, Trump is being Trump...so much action, and no indication of when services would resume. Normally when a site is down, it at least has an informative holding page - CDC just said 'not available'.

Just curious.  Why would a hacker spend time sneaking into our forum?  What purpose would that serve?  Would he come to my place and steal my scooter?  Don’t hackers have a lot bigger fish to fry than us?

Because it's affiliated with the NHL not some bum league, so anything with the NHL is popular, people will come. All they need to do is get access to your email that you used for your account and then who knows what that email is connected to with other accounts you use(maybe NHL gamecenter as example). Not that hard if that email is used for accounts that are affiliated with currency, and then who knows what they go after next. Hackers will find anyway to hack something especially when it's not secure so easy then.

My son set this all up for me, so I guess he’s the one who gets hacked.  :lol:

This time it was due to a logistic issue. That said, the IPB software is very secure, and CDC has never experienced and intrusion or downtime due to hacking. I'm looking into https for us now.

Thanks for the response and good to know it wasn't or has been in the past. And very much appreciate looking into the https, for it makes sense to have when passwords are involved lol.

not sure if its a bug...but the box to create a status update on cdc home...is missing for me?

i made a status update, the day the forum cam back online, but today its missing?....seems others are able to make updates....im using the website from my comp, maybe they are using the mobile? or maybe im banned from status updates, or maybe i just suck?(probably true regardless but...)

edit: and like magic its back...i guess i do really suck.

I just recently switched to a new phone and I get logged out everytime I close the tab on mobile. With my two previous phones, I stayed logged in.

It's because I had the sign-in page bookmarked and even if I was signed it, the bookmarked page kept prompting me to sign in. Going to any other page directly shows that I do remain logged on.

So I noticed I was unable to access all the "reputation" icons and came to this thread to post a question as to why.

Then noticed I could not type a reply or post it.

Had to delete all cookies and browsing history etc.

 

Everything is now working again, but in a few months I'd guess I'll need to do the same thing.

 

computers are a pain in the buttocks.
