NC Under Attack

Like Tree3Likes

Well, I for one am reading everyone's PMs and having a laugh.





j/k

I don't see how reading anyone's PMs is even possible because whenever I clicked a link, I was someone else or back to myself again. Or the site wigged out and threw a security error at me.

That's not to say a hacker couldn't be accessing them.

Anyway, it seems to have calmed down now

You are beautiful!
I have some more info for you. The NC Smart Guy says the strange things you were seeing were not a breach of security (although it might have looked that way).
The company was using some very aggressing caching techniques that, for a very short time, were serving up some cached pages.

So a page would be requested by, say, "Gretchen", because I was logged in.

This page has "Welcome, Gretchen" as part of the html in the upper left hand corner. When this page was cached, a subsequent request (by another user) would simply not go to our server, but just return this cached page (html). Although it appeared as if you were logged in as someone else, in fact you were not. You could not actually gain access to this other person's information, it was simply cached html markup.

It was a weird uh oh, and we're truly sorry for any concern caused.

Please know that NaturallyCurly takes security very seriously and would never permit a true breach to occur.

Thanks for helping us track this one down!

Gretchen just to let you know..private messages meant for others were indeed readable. I was reading one that I thought was for me..and realized I was TOTALLY in someone else's PM box. I looked at the inbox to be sure and indeed I was in someone else's PM box even though I had logged on as myself. I tried to log in again and it happened with another members box. I immediately sent a message to the administration here. Then I started posting and creating threads about the issue to alert the staff and members.

Maybe that's not a big deal or anything but I just wanted to let you know so you could be aware of it.. But I am glad to hear the site wasn't hacked!
Ugh. That's no good, Marah. I'll share that with the team. Were you looking at your inbox via the site? Or did you get an email w/ someone else's PM?
