Hacking attempts on this forum

Please record on this thread all the hacking atempts undertaken by the kothari goons to takedown this site under the patronage of clergy like qaid joher. This site was unavailaible many times since last week. A DDOS attack was suspected earlier, please keep the readers informed so that people with required expertise can help out.

Also note that it is a penal crime to do such attacks and the perpetrator can be jailed and penalized for this according to the Indian laws. So please maintain all the logs and info needed to trace the attack.

This is strange... I am writing this comment using a chrome browser on a mobile phone.. This forum was open in my fone on chrome for quite a few hours now. However, when I tried to go to this forum from another browser (default browser of the phone)..? I got a 403 unavailable error... That is the forum is available at this time when the session with a user is established over a long time but its not available when u try to load the forum fresh now!

I am not a kothari goon and yet for no reason, everytime I logged on this site, I got pop ups, when I got rid of that, I had another problem. Everytime, I tried to log on, midway the site would freeze. So mind you it is not the kothari goons but others whose head I have rubbed into the dirt many a time. I was also warned of attacks from outside and also received e mails from a source I did not recognise so I asked my technician to check and he told me it was a virus. This is punishable by law in Canada and the States but takes money and effort to prove. I have since learned where my attack came from and letting the sick old man enjoy his glory. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The admin should let know readers who is attacking this forum.

I don't believe that the DOS attack has been resolved. The website is responding very poorly, and very often posts are lost after clicking the "Submit" button. It is possible that the problem is with the new version of the forum software, but this long load times and loss of posts is very annoying.

Dear Admin,

I am not able to access the threads on this forum from any of my systems at home. I get a persistent 403 forbidden error. I guess, this will restrict access to this site for people. I have never faced this issue with any other website which I believe are designed for maximum security. This was not the case before the forum was upgraded. Dear Admin, what do you have to say about this? Please advise. Thanks.
