Le forum me sert surtout à aider, à poster des solutions qui m'ont servies.
Linux Mint sans son forum, la communauté était en peine...

Il est revenu, la vie est belle non ? :mrgreen:

Is the blog working for everybody now?

It's fine for us, but there's cache involved with the firewall so I just wanted to make sure.

For me, the blog looks OK. As usual.

http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2994 is A-OK.
https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2994 is NOT, even with a forced reload.

Tomorrow is a better day!
And I have no reason to doubt it won't be ok tomorrow.

Question: Were the md5sum values ever altered at http://www.linuxmint.com/release.php?id=26 for the Cinnamon version ?

I do hope they are, its time to take security seriously now, and Clem you need to make a statement about it.
This should have never happened

Sucuri CloudProxy

CloudProxy is a WebSite Firewall from Sucuri. It stands between your site and the rest of the world and protects against attacks, malware infections, DDOS, brute force attempts and mostly anything that can harm it.

Not only that, but your sites get cached, speeding it up quite a bit. Interested? Visit http://cloudproxy.sucuri.net

Can't post comment either, same mechanism as Cosmo.

Security Warning prior to submit. Not sure users want to see that kind of notice. :wink:

It might not be the main reason, but if this didn't happen to other distros recently, then there is this big plot against the currently-most-popular-linux-distro and her users.

And we're glad to have a team that's quick to react. Kudos to them! :D

Don't use https for the blog just yet, it's not ready.

Regarding the blog comments, I changed the firewall settings, hopefully it should be better now.

Yep, commenting is now possible. (Clem, comment 139 was just for this test, you can delete it, if you want.)

Good to see the main site and message board up and running again so quickly but I echo what Cosmo says. Log-in is a pain (and the Captcha isn't user-friendly)

Can an administrator please look into this or tell me, what I did probably wrong! I can guarantee, that it is not a problem of a mistyped user-name or password
