ATTENTION: Notice about Intrusion Prevention System and Posting

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let everyone know that we have deployed a network wide Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) to protect our network against malicious activity (at least a good portion of it). Therefore, if you are trying to make posts with code in it that include items such as a SCRIPT tag, you may not be able to post. I know this an inconvenience, but we are going to work together and setup another code dump site on a separate IP that bypasses these types of filters.

Just be careful with the code you post. If you make a post and it takes you to a "Could not Connect" or a blank white screen, you have just triggered the IPS and your connection was blocked.

Regards,

how long does our connection get blocked for when such a trigger occurs?  and who would we contact to be removed from the ban list?

just questions that i think will come up, given that this is a programming forum and i'm sure there will be some that miss this message.

It might not block the connection, but keep it from moving forward, thus requring you to go back and correct whatever you did wrong. That is what I would do, but he may have done it differently.  Eric never ceases to amaze me on his cool tricks.

It will block only that connection that has the potential malicious payload. Any future connections that are clean will go through just fine.
