Good evening everyone,

 

     I just noticed about an hour ago that the Secunia icon in my Taskbar is now gray;  Also, Secunia will not load.. Attempts to access Secunia.com via Firefox generate the message that the server cannot be found, may be too busy, unavailable, etc etc.  I have no problems accessing any other sites. Scans with my AV, MBAM Pro, & SAS are all clean.

 

My questionIs anyone aware of a problem on Secunia's end that is causing this issue?

 

[EDIT]:  It appears that at least one other member has posted a similar problem at the following link here:

Thanks very much for your time and any follow-up info!

Posted 20 minutes after yours, but I have been trying for about 1 hour -

My PSI Version 2 stalls at "Verifying Internet Connection" and the tray icon is Red.

 

It can take a while to open at times, but I left it open for 5 minutes several times, and it would not continue.

MBAM and SAS scans show nothing .....

I appreciate the confirmation, Noknojon!  (At least I know I'm not imagining things) :bounce:

 

Best regards,

Thanks for that link, Animal! :bananas:

 

     I wasn't aware of that one.  The Secunia icon in my Taskbar is back to its normal green color, and I have no problem accessing the Secunia website now either.  (The only similar "type" of link I've ever been aware of is:

 

downrightnow(dot)com.  I check it periodically when I start to see increasing complaints about email access problems in another forum I belong to).

 

Best regards, and stay cool!
