New security procedure to post?

Post by Eddystone »

Curious about now needing to go through a Captcha process in order to post. Is this temporary or permanent? Have there been security issues? Seems to be intermittently necessary.

Could be. There's been a nondescript van parked across the street for the past few days. Need to go back to using the Faraday cage, I guess. ;-)

Eddy, the server was getting hit from somewhere, so I set security to High. It seems to have stopped, so I changed it just now to Medium. Do you still get a challenge?
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Just look for the WiFi node FBI-SURVEILLANCE-VAN nearby. Password is “collusion”

The van guys said to tell you your checking account balance is low.

Here's the BS I have to deflect. When you get a challenge, you're just caught in the rules, and just have to answer the challenge. Sorry about that.

An example from security logs: (this is why we can't have nice things)
