UNABLE TO ACCESS DRUDGE

Posted on 08/07/2008 11:51:21 AM PDT by 101voodoo

I have suddenly noticed my link to DRUDGE takes me to a Vonage sign in page. No matter how I attempt to get to the Drudge site it takes me to the same Vonage page which asks me for my name and password. I do use Vonage but how could that have anyhting to do with a total inability to get to the Drudge site?

Even if I type in DRUDGE in the search bar and go to the page of links, no matter which link to Drudge I use I go to the Vonage page. How is this possible and is anyone else having this problem?

Works fine for me. Try the whole thing:

or 66.28.209.219

Works for me too.

Check to make sure you don’t have something trashed in your browser, and for the love of Mike (whoever he is) run some anti-spyware stuff on your machine!

Not a problem here. Sounds like a local problem on your end. Do you use a Vonage browser toolbar?

Amazingly this works:

66.28.209.219

While this does not:

www.drudgereport.com

which still takes me to the same Vonage sign in page.

Thanks for the help

Looks like you’ve been hijacked. There’s an app named “hijackthis” which should set your beeber straight.

Open a command line and type:

tracert www.drudgereport.com

Last few lines of my trace look like this:

Might want to check your hosts file too to see what’s in there.

There were Internet-wide DNS attacks trying to exploit some freshly discovered vulnerabilities. DNS is what translates a name - drudgereport.com - into a set of numbers of the IP address. The purpose was to redirect people to some “bad guys” sites that mimic normal sites to steal personal info.

Not much you as just a user can do besides being always watchful.

If you know how to do it, put a top level DNS as your DNS server 4.2.2.1 or 4.2.2.2

Good job!

I said that because it really sounded like something changed with your browser at first.
