    Default Is the site being attacked?

    There are currently 772 users online. 11 members and 761 guests

    That looks like a denial-of-service attack. Maybe this is why the server keeps having outages.

    I don't know, Ed, but why would anybody bother to attack a hair forum?

    They don't care that LHC is a hair forum, only a vBulletin site. An attacker could be trying to spread malware.

    Yes, the computer kind. This is just a possibility. I can't think of many reasons to attack vBulletin sites.

    I find it a bit hard to believe only 11 members are on at any one given time...
    Putting it in my signature because I have to say it so often:
    Do what works for your hair, not what other people say is "right" or "wrong." If it works for you, it's not wrong. If it doesn't work for you, it's not right.

    Yes, I'm sure there would be way more than 11 at any given time.

    Lately I noticed that site is having trouble working. Every now and then a message pops that the site is busy, server is full etc...

    Good question. There's a huge number of IP addresses from Singapore currently browsing LHC, some of which show up in lists of sketchy addresses. I'll check with the admins whether we can block a range of addresses to cut down on this.
