    Over the past 48 hours the server has been up & down like a yoyo.
    After further investigation it seems that the server has been abused and is sending out denial of service attacks.

    Im currently looking into this as to what site let the vunrability in and how I can secure it.
    I have another server on standby so may switch pspmod over to a new server if the issue is not resolved by the end of the day.

    Sorry for the issues!

    Update:

    Looks like we found the source, a small site thats hosted on the same server has an insecure gallery upload script that has allowed a ddos script to be uploaded and abused.
    Im now working to secure this.

    Update #2:

    We have found & secured the malicious ddos script, however it now seems the intruder has turned against the server and is now returning the favour so tos peak and ddos'ing the server.
    The datacenter are currently working to migrate the attack but duirng this time the site maybe unavailable due to all fo the bandwidth being swallowed up by the ddos attack.

    Ninja88, could you send me a screenshot or see where its trying to redirect you?

    Update #3
    After further investigation I also found malicious scripts within /modules/ here at pspmod.com which had been there for a few months, I thought they were part of the vbulletin vbadvanced software but they were malicious scripts, these have now been removed and the site, I have secured the site folder permissions and vbulelletin & 3rd aprty is all up to date so fingers crossed that should be the end of that!

    no wonder i experienced issues logging on to PSPMOD yesterday.
    after spending 5 minutes on the site, it hangs up and does not load any other page.
    looks like its fixed now.
    Thanks Webtek
