To anyone who has issues logging in:

It may take a couple of days for that to clear. Please try again later. There's no need to change/reset your passwords.

Thanks for your patience.

Hopefully you're tracking down the SOB that's doing this and going after him with law enforcement.

I take it you are switching IP's when you get attacked. In which case it takes a few days for peoples computers to resolve camaro5.com to the new address.

Here's a fix for that peeps.

Click the start button, then the run option.
Type CMD in the run box and hit enter. A black DOS box opens up.

Type "ipconfig /flushdns" and then enter. Close the window.

Your stored lookups will be deleted and it will get the new address.

Looking up the laws in my state, it's a felony if someone was ddosing the site. And if given the opportunity, I'd even go to bat for Tran filing and pressing charges against the SOB that's doing this...

Ah, I didn't see this thread earlier! Glad Tran was able to get this all sorted out. Was starting to wonder if it was going to come back for a moment.

haha yea for sure. Problem is by nature a DDOS attack is essentially untraceable unless the NSA or similar get involved and spend some serious effort to trace it. That effort will likely not happen for a car forum... unless c5 has some hackers that can help

unless the attack includes cache poisoning, in which case flushing your dns resolver will cause you to retrieve the spoofed IPs

You should be receiving emails and/or pm's from whomever you are purchasing through. If any message was sent through the site, it had to have been done when the site was up and running. Otherwise, they wouldn't be able to get on the site to send a message, less you being able to receive it.

Now that the site is back up, just send a PM to see where you are at. maybe get some outside contact info like and email address to continue the sale should something happen to the site again.

I've got that too, didnt even know the site was back up till I got a email stating someone responded to a thread I was subscribed too. Had to google search camaro5.com and click the actually forum tab to pop it up. Homepage itself wouldn't work for me. Oh well, atleast I can stop shaking...

Very odd behavior! Directly typing camaro5.com into chrome I cannot login to save my life! Googling camaro5 and clicking on the forums link I am good to go, logged in and everything. I cleared my history and cache earlier today so I have no idea where the saved info is coming from. I also tried IE to login and it didn't help.

camaro5.com and www.camaro5.com are two different sites as far as cookies are concerned, thats probably the discrepency. Anyways, it should be all fixed now regardless of how u get to the site
