We all had major trouble tonight, just 7 left at the end. Shame this seems to happen on a regular basis. When I was trying to get back in after the 3rd chuck out, I got a message over my screen saying "this site has been hacked by "iht"". Wherever I moved my mouse, I got a block of white over my background photo. I ran MalwareBytes which showed nothing, and my Anti-virus shows no problems either. Very odd.

Still, thanks to Arthur for persevering, when I would have aborted and given up. Well done.

Regards, Ray.

If it's neither here, nor there, then where is it?

With all the crashes, Lockouts etc we had tonight during the quiz I must admit that on more than one occassion I was tempted to ask, shall we give up?  Still we managed to get to the end even with only a few left.

Final winner was Gramarg on 13 points with Vetchugger runner up on 12 points.

Also some excellent performances tonight from Grendel in the Coot Club round and Rondonay with the Sailey questions.

Many thanks to those who persevered despite all the problems and I hope that Graham has a trouble free quiz next week.

All the best

Arthur

Based on what Ray (Regulo) has posted and a quick Google, it would seem that there may be some pimply faced prats with no social skills who have targetted the chatroom.

I have only been in the quiz twice in ages, is this kind of problem regular?

Google shows several variants of "IHT", the least likely is "International Herald Tribune". The "I" could be many different things, but "HT" is very probably "Hacking Team".

Is there anything that can be done to up the security? Is the flashchat an old and easily hacked version?

HDT, I am not what you'd call a regular Quizzer (I'd rather be afloat), but every time I've taken part, there has been some disruption. Mostly lock-outs where your input just doesn't, well, input. The only way then is to exit and re-enter. But last night seemed the first time the whole shebang went pear-shaped for everyone at once. The hacked site message I got didn't seem to adversely affect either the chat room on it's return, or my own computer, and I can't see why anyone would announce their hacking if malice were intended. As you say, pimply youths, most likely.

Regards, Ray.
