Issues fixed now, panic over. [Was: WARNING: Do *not* use...

Post by Miguel » 11 Sep 2008 01:22 pm

Hi guys,

TL;DR : DON'T visit the site through Neocolours.eu or Neocolours.org.uk until I (and only I, in case someone is trying to be clever and evil here) give the OK again. Use Neocolours.me.uk, which is the main domain for the site.

Techy bits go here :
It seems that somewhere along the way, Neocolours.eu and Neocolours.org.uk have had their DNS hijacked and routed to some hive of scum and villainy (a random malware/phishing/naughty pictures server). It's not anything I can directly correct, as I have control of the records and they should be fine, so I think someone's trying to hit an exploit on a DNS server out of my control. It's happening to many domains, we've not been singled out from the crowd as far as I can tell. I'm in contact with the DNS people for the domains, and we'll see what comes out of that.

TL;DR :
Issues fixed, use whatever URL you want.

We had a network issue with the webforwarding server, which has been fixed already. Make sure you close the browser and clear its cache before trying to access the page again.
Thank you for contacting the Customer Care Team
I think their issue was that the server got pwned *hard*, but then I wouldn't expect them to admit it to customers. Anyway, it's all fixed now - if you get an "Apache Test Page" or a non-NC 404, just keep hitting refresh until the real site loads.
