    I've had issues with posting in threads since the forum got put back up.
    It won't let me reply to a post I'll get this response when trying to submit a post

    You do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again.

    I refresh the page and I get logged off. And if it does submit a post of mine it's after numerous tries of pressing the submit button.
    Any help??

    Wow, so you put a little work into it. Thats cool

    From how this went down on so many random devices with different users, but not ALL devices and ALL users, it screams "user end" in IT logic. As I said, I never saw a thing on my end anywhere, and I even checked my AV and Firewall logs for any kind of activity that may have been blocked from this site, and nothing shows up that was the least bit out of the ordinary. No attempts at attacks or trying to scan for open ports......nothing whatsoever. I've scanned my entire PC, for example, with 3 or 4 different programs, and nothing was found. Tablets and phones are completely clean too.

    Whatever it is, I hope for the sake of the folks who were affected that they've secured their systems and made sure they had nothing on there that doesn't belong

    Check to make sure you have cookies enabled in your broswer. It sounds like they might be disabled, and the site, or your browser, is logging you out of the boards. If you're not sure how, let me know, and I'll try to talk you through it

    It's the TAGF way, so yes

    yep that is what I said in the earlier threads on this subject. I also recommended people get a good free antivirus, and scan there entire system for malware using Malwarebytes. There are also addons to block the draft kings ads for the ppl that didn't know that. Make sure your PC's are up to date people, I can't stress this enough.

    Good advice, with one exception: Know what they say about "free" stuff? You get what you pay for

    There's nothing wrong with those free AV programs, but they dont all work as well. Now I know Malwarebytes has a free version, and that one is fantastic, but I even sprung for the paid version, which runs in real time, along with ESET Internet security. I dont even know that they're running in the background because they use next to no resources, but my machine is locked down, and I've never had a single issue with attacks on it since I've set it up this way

    I've been using ESET from microcenter for years, along side of Malwarebytes. Good advice and you're right the paid versions are better. The best part about Nod32 is the low resources.

    Union Station in DC was hacked and they ran Pornhub through their video monitors.

    this cyberattack this past week could be to blame. just update the software and security updates to protect these boards..

    Peace out!
