We have been getting reports that some get "cannot find server" error, which may be a DNS error or may be related to the recent vulnerability.

 

If you have this issue or any other issue getting the site to load at times. Please post the following.

 

Country you're in

ISP

Your primary and secondary DNS server

The browser your using

The operating system you're using (windows 7, 8, 8.1, linux flavor, mac, android, IOS, windows phone, etc.)

If possible, give an approximate time it happened.

205.152.128.23, 205.152.37.23 - will very rarely use the Google Open DNS settings, but they aren't always reliable.

IE 11, FF 28.0x2

Win 7 x64, Custom Slack install (explains the 2 versions of FF)

Latest was 20:45 Thursday 10 April - have had it happen a few times, and it seems to be independent of public or staff forum.

 

Server response today has been very slow.

Haven't had the issue lately, while using my ISP provided DNS servers, will switch back to google DNS now, and see if i can provoke the issue, if so the sinner is found.

Just a guess, but maybe it had something to do with the vulnerability or the attacks on some of the internet backbone infrastructure.

 

But have been tweaking and investigating nonetheless.
