Description of problem

Hi,

My forum is under some kind of attack,for several days. Under this attack, all my inner links have been affected. I've been fighting for several days, I'm even forced to turn off Footer link, and clear/delite all the internal links on the site map page.

Also, the first day was under attack by my home page and all the linked images on it:
My forum is under some kind of attack Screen31

Attack info:
My forum is under some kind of attack Screen32

It affected all my internal links!

very badly!!!!!

Now I am forced to erase all my internal links, until the attack stops. My question is: "Can you help me with this problem".
And whether a similar or the same problem and other forums have.

Kindest
gandra

Hello,

The screen you see there is the standard message for websites without https. Even thouth it says the site is not secure, it probably is and just doesn't have https. It is google's way of pushing ssl certificates. It really does not mean anything.

Looks like the problem is still present. Here's what's happening. When I replace a problematic link with the same link, the problem disappears. I get the impression  after replacing link , the same link is slightly shorter for pixel or two. I have visible about a thousand internal links. I think the security problem has affected you server. Check out in this topic  by clicking the arrow at the end of the topic.

Once again, there is no attack going on, its just the browser for some reason.

How long has this been happening? Did you make any changes right before it startex happening?

A couple of days. It really does not make sense to change  the same links. I did not make any changes on these topics from their creation. I must replace all internal links, seems to be the only solution for now.

I cannot see the browser problem. My browser (Google Chrome) doesn't detect any anomaly.

Did you find out what the problem was or are you just replacing the links as you said in the previous post?

I guess what the problem can be. My forum was in https,befor two or or three months. I do not remember exactly. And now it's just http. All internal links remained in https mode, that's a problem. There was no automatic change from https to http.

So you purchased a SSL certificate and now it is not working?

No. 

The purchased time for https has expired about three months ago . Although the certificate has expired, everything was ok, until now. Then came the problem a few days ago. Internal links have not been redirected to http. They are still in https. And my purchased time has expired. But as I said, there was no problem, until now. My purchased time expired three months ago the problem appeared these days. I really do not know, do you understand me or not. I'll handle this problem, but I need to replace all https links with http. So there's no automatic switching from http to https and vice versa.That's the problem. bwi

You can still purchase a SSL certificate.  Ok.  So the issue now is that all https links are not in http?

If you manually added the links, no there is not an automatically way.

It is only automatic for images hosted by Forumotion and their third party services.

It all depends on how the browser is reading it. The problem is, that your browser sees that the ssl certificate is no longer valid when it tries to load it, thus triggering the ssl certificate is not valid warning you are getting.

I can't explain why it was for awhile and now it is not, all I can tell you is that it is more then likely due to the forum no longer being https and the links still saying https.
