Any railroad line forum users/browsers here? They seem to be hacked?

Hi Philip :wave:



Well, from where I'm sitting, they seem to have a problem still 5 hours later.

Looks like they might be in some trouble. :f:

Looks like it might be a bad idea, to try & connect to RailRoadLine at present.

Checking it out a bit further, my browser came up with this :-



The owner of secure.advanced-networks.com has configured their website improperly.
To protect your information from being stolen, TenFourFox has not connected to this website.

The website still exists, which is good.  I'm looking at the site right now and it appears to be in it's basic structure.  No photos, no outside links, no graphics, just text and links within the website.  Tried clicking on a page and all I got was this error:

[font=""]ADODB.Recordset error '800a0bb9'
According to coding websites, this type of error occurs when pieces of code that connect various parts of the shite together are missing or blocked out so that they can't be read.  The result is that the site either crashes or exists in a diminished form.

I rather doubt this is a hacking attempt, railroad-line is a pretty small target compared to websites like Amazon, Wells Fargo and Yahoo. Besides, we don't have a lot of useful private info on forums like these.
Most likely someone at the host company either broke the website, or provided an update that blocked out that code accidentally.  There's probably 100 other ways I can't think of at the moment but there's little doubt in my mind it was accidental human error.
