our bandwidth usage went from 323.07 MB (MEGABYTES) in September 2018
then 7.46 GB(GIGBYTES) the next month - october 2018
and 5.25 GB this month

soooo... now to find out what caused our bandwidth to jump like 15,000 PERCENT in one month.

i dont think so... a post takes up very little bandwith. the entire database of over 1 million posts is like 1.2 GB i think.

someone ...a hacker/bot..from china i think, is using or board to send emails and transfer data using our bandwidth. we have nlimited bandwidth though, so i didn't notice it until a few hours ago when i pulled up the traffick logs

and for some reason, as soon as i blocked all incomming connections from china.. 3 "access denied" server errors popped up on the error log with referralls from sketchy porn websites ...which are also based out of china....and they are linking to us for some reason.


the thing is...i have a good idea of what is going on. but at the same time.. i can't figure out specifially what they are doing or able to find any specific evidence. something is wrong thogh.

i emailed the webhost because this is out of my league at this point... also the firewall has been set to the highest setting and blocking random ip's and making the board glitch out and i can't change the settings. the host has to do it for me... but they're the ones who did it in the irst place, and i assume they had a reason.

it would have been nice if they thought to send me an email letting me know about it rather than letting me spend 6 hours figuring it out on my own lol

also for the record, i was i no way at any point insinating this had anything to do with reddick.


me: hey we're getting bombarded with connections from sketchy porn websites based out of china and someone is using our email server to send out phishing links advertising knock off viagra pills
the board: must be reddick
me: wait, what? :francona1: no...that's not what i said at all lol

i will vouch, this has nothing to do with reddick


by the way.. what does reddick do for work. i thought he was a stay at home boyfriend

Relax with the charts, nerd. Driving an hour to the Cape would be well worth giving you a wedgie.

imagine being a 34 year old man, living with mom, collecting unemployment from a part-time delivery job at a pizza franchise that got shut down, trying to pick up a 16 year old dunkin donuts barista, who is paid to be nice to you, in your 2006 acura.

first of all, I have not banned anyone in months.. maybe even a year ... or more. i never ban people. I am constantly unbanning people actualy.

however at least once a week i have to go and unban hudreds of ip addresses that you guys all keep banning, because i keep trying to explain to you that i bans are essentially obsolete with modern internet except unless the person has a static ip address at home and never used a mobile device to log into their account. , and a cell phone's i address changes constantly and they get recyles to other users on the network. so over a 10 year period, lots of posters end up have IP address matches with other random posters like manny, phifer, phat and FF all came up when i cross checked an ip once... and i am like 97 percent sure those 4 posters are not secretly the same person.



And when you guys keep doing that, then I keep getting complaints from other posters asking me why the are banned, because someone will ban every p address that manny has posted from in the last in the year, and end up banning every at&t phone on the eastern seaboard. everyone excet manny ironicaly, because manny is not as stupid as he lets on and knows how to get around an ip ban, especially if the person who issues the ban doesn't entirely know what they are doing.



just two days ago I had 3 people tell me they couldn't post from their phone/home work... here's a screen cap of the mod log. i have to do this like every fucking week

omg i just typed like 5 fucking paragraphs because obp can't read and the fucking server keeps giving me this fucking 406 error randomly and deleting everyting i typed

tl;dr

i didn't do anything. i'm in the process of fixing it. it involves stuff only the web host can do, so i'm waiting for them to respond to me email. i am already aware of any problems, and i can't even remember the last time i banned anyone for anything. i am constantly unbanning people and trying to convince the rest of you not ban like 1/5 of our users for no reason. your ip is banned because there's a module called mod_security on the apache server that is esstially a fancy firewall with a mind of it's own. for some reason it didn't like something about the ip address you and pwd are using and banned it. i cannot over-ride it. the server is confifured in a way that won't let me. they have to do it.

i have many quettions for them...

yes i am aware of the percent symbol thing. it's one of many weird glitches being caused by the mod_secuirity module being set to the highest protection setting, because we have had a security breach i tried to tell you al about like 4 or 5 weeks ago but no one cared. i susected we had been hacked (not sure if its by a human or just a bot.. but the connections were coming from china. i have blocked china.. but the block can easily be avoided with a VPN if it's a person doing this. ..anyway no one resonded to my post except for a :reddick:

i cant figure out what their intentions were of whoever hacked the board...and i idn't know what the repercussions of that might be. or what they have been doing


i am starting to see them now. this is why i asked for help trying to identify the issue when i first suspected something was wrong. i even made it an announcement sticky and everything lol. the i said "ah fuck it. we'll see what happens i gguess"
