At first I thought it was the crappy internet we have up here so it's nothing new for us to lose it.

Site was unavailable for a few hours Sunday afternoon GMT.
Glad & relieved to have the site back; roll on the anecdotes & banter!  :thumbsup:

Yep, it's been down most of afternoon

Was it denial-of-service (DDoS) attack?

Fixed now.

Admin posted that it was fixed two hours ago. Probably nothing more to say about it then ...

Whatever the problem was - thanks very much for sorting it out so quickly.

I upgraded to Firefox 36, so thought that was the issue!!

Then I started to get weird Chinese writings on each of my tabs in firefox, so thought my pc had been compromised..... hence could not access UKP (Error 502 kept being displayed).

Shit.... and I just spent £300 on a new laptop because of it?  :mad:

First page 3 then us. Mumsnet hate two things: pretty women and men, which makes us a prime target for espionage. One things for sure, they'll never take me alive
Banning reason: Shitstirring against admin on behalf of banned member

Not this time, just general server problem, errant script taking up all CPU.

Does it mean you face DDoS attacks? It looks like you have enemies in cyberspace.

Was down yesterday I believe for a bit. It said server was not available.
Banning reason: Ignored admin warning after temporary banning and signed up to malicious troll anti-UKP site

Yes we've had 15-20 incidents of DDoS attacks in the past 2 years. Some of them big ones (thousands of connection requests per second from thousands of IPs).
I believe all the culprits are A/W scammers, because they've already sent me threats objecting to our AW scams thread.

I have been getting that as well, thought it was just me.     :unknown:

Googled it, and it's been happening since December 2014. Something to do with McAfee not working proerly in conjunction with firefox. My firefox appears to have been fixed now.
