    whois lookup

    doesn't show any identification details.

    its registered via a company in arizona, but TBH that means nothing.

    Its Ip is 66.199.231.59, which appears to be located in Bleford, New Jersey. That may not be definitive either, but merely a front end/reverse proxy arrangement intended to obfuscate.

    If Russia all of a sudden start taking Rugby seriously, I have a good idea who might be behind this...

    Question Re: Forums hacked?

    So was the forum going down today related to this hack in any way?

    Some of my links are now going to FS72. Particularly historic links to other threads.

    Ian,
    Can somebody inform Robbie's mate, that the quick fix worked for a short time only, but now we are in need of a lasting solution. Which presumably, takes a bit longer to implement.

    Tell me what happens with the following

    1. When you physically type "www.rugbyrefs.com" into the address bar of your browser and hit ENTER.

    2. When you click on this link - http://www.rugbyrefs.com

    3. When you click on this link - https://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=t&rc...WRAHIK8p_5CgbA

    4. When you type "rugbyrefs" into a Google search and click on he top result (see attached file)



    If any of the above takes you to the "FS72" redirect page, clear your cookies and your cache from your browser history, restart tour browser and try again.

    Tell me what the circumstances are that lead you to the redirect page.

    Try right clicking on that first link, and opening the page in a new tab. What happens?
