Post Number:#1  Unread postby Miss M » Tue Apr 30, 2013 11:56 am


Recently, some of our members (myself included) have had difficulty posting sometimes. Some things will post, but other attempts get error messages.

The error message looks like this (it may vary a little among browsers):

403 Error

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /posting.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache Server at rabbittalk.com Port 80


Our Webmaster MidnightCoder has determined that someone at our new host company has blocked the use of certain words in an overzealous attempt to prevent hacking. We need to figure out what words are being blocked.

If you encounter this error when you attempt to post or send a PM, we would greatly appreciate it if you would spend an extra couple of minutes tinkering with the wording of your post, to figure out what word(s) is causing the error. You can post the word here (or PM it to any Admin or Mod), but you will need to modify the word in order for it to go through. You can do something like this:

f*i*r*e*w*a*l*l (this word was causing me problems yesterday)

Thank you all in advance!

This topic will remain a Sticky in the Welcome to Rabbittalk forum, as long as it is needed.

Thanks Miss M. I will try to break up what I was going to post when I get some time and see if there is a word or two I can find. I'll edit this post if I find any.

Thanks, Mystang! You don't have to edit your post, you can just add a new one if you like.

Terry -- it just let me post that word (I removed it), so I don't know... thanks for keeping an eye out! :)

I was having that issue with posting a link to a FB image in the chat box, but I don't know if it is related or not. I was able to send the image to you through PM, so might not be.

I just tried it again and got the same message. I went ahead and sent the text with a brief description of what I tried to do to the e-mail address you've posted.

Right... I couldn't even PM the word "firewall". :roll:

Thank you, MC, for helping us get back to normal... at least, normal for here... :P

I got it several times today as well. I was finally able to do a small post about my new rabbits. In a reply to my own post, I was able to add the info I could not put in the original post.

I tried about five different versions of my original post and kept getting the error. I was also trying to add the pic, but was finally able to do that.

If you have the problem again, please do send the full text of what you're trying to post to MC's address up there. :) Did you send him this one? If not, it's not too late. :)

Oh, nope, I didn't want to send it all over the place and have people wondering why I'm bothering everyone with the same thing. =D
Does the host not have a list of blocked words or do they not want to give it up?

What are some other words that were blocked? Maybe there is a pattern or certain types of words the person chose and we could figure them out?

Oh, okay, I'll send it to him, then. :)

ChickiesnBunnies wrote:Does the host not have a list of blocked words or do they not want to give it up?

I don't know if they have a list of words that MC can see... I think MC just figured out what some of them were, based on some of the info he got from us.

ChickiesnBunnies wrote:What are some other words that were blocked? Maybe there is a pattern or certain types of words the person chose and we could figure them out?

The short list he posted in the Mod forum just to see if the problem looked resolved was full of terms related to a range of computer security issues. Stuff like "route", "cmd", ".exe", "firewall", and so on (even "curl"). So p*e*n*i*c*i*l*l*i*n isn't even remotely related, as far as I know! That one's just strange... but then again, maybe it has a secondary meaning that I don't know. Like "curl"... who knew? :roll:

Well, that really is weird!
But curl sounds familiar....

Found this via Google
"curl is a command line tool for transferring data with URL syntax"

__________Wed May 01, 2013 9:35 pm ___________

Found out why Pen.i.cill.in may of been blocked.

I think if we tried a whole list of commands and code related words, we might find a bunch that are blocked.

You know... something told me I'd seen that word somewhere related to anti-malware programs, but I just couldn't dig it out of my brain. And I didn't look it up. :roll:

I've sent MC a message. :)

ChickiesnBunnies wrote:I think if we tried a whole list of commands and code related words, we might find a bunch that are blocked.

You may be right. It's amazing that the host hasn't completely fixed this yet. I'm sure they got lots of mail about it! You'd think it would be pretty straightforward to figure out which new guy made this blunder, find all the words he entered, and unblock them.

__________Thu May 09, 2013 5:55 pm ___________

We are still having occasional issues with this error.

Please, even if you have the error and then it resolves itself, do still send the text to MidnightCoder at bug@rabbittalk.com ... just let him know that the error went away. This will help him finish fixing the issue.

Thank you! :)
