    I am getting a 404 error trying to log on and a scam virus from a link from Gmail, also tried from my android phone and the same 404 error, what is happening?

    Saw that earlier myself, thought at first my phone had an issue. Looks like something nasty has got on the server. Think RMweb has been turned off in the meantime to stop folk falling for the phishing attack. Andy is on top of it I'm sure.

    I wonder how many folk flock to here when it’s off line!
    I look to FB page first and saw what was going on.
    Cheers

    RM web is up again.
    This is from the RM web servers FB page.

    RMweb Server Updates Sunday 07.20 - Back up and running. Users may have seen spurious pop-up ads and/or hijack pages and/or login boxes for a short period from around 13.00 to 13.25 yesterday before I took the site offline for remedial action. I don't believe any of those pages will have caused any issue to users' systems but I hope no-one attempted to put their login details into one of the spurious login boxes; if you did I would recommend installing and running the free version of Malwarebytes.

    There were two distinct issues caused by a hack which seemed to come via the Ukraine, these have been removed and functions tested but I still have some work to do. There may still be a vulnerability for recurrence but that will be worked on to. If there should be a repeat it should be quicker to resolve if it takes similar form.

    I’m surprised, I thought they were busy charging the drone batteries...
