forge.ocamlcore.org NOT reported as unsafe anymore

Sylvain Le Gall - 2016-03-29 09:55 - Site Admin

Thanks to the help of E. Török and the Google Webmaster Tools we were able to spot the problem and remove what appears to the search engines as a virus. We are now indexed again on Google and not reported anymore as containing malicious content.

forge.ocamlcore.org reported as unsafe in Firefox/Chrome

Sylvain Le Gall - 2016-03-27 10:12 - Site Admin

The website is actually reported as containing malicious links. I noticed that some spambots were uploading content as bug attachment and I need to track all that and clean the website.

Spam problem, lot of mails cannot be sent

Sylvain Le Gall - 2015-06-11 11:37 - Site Admin

I recently got an alert that the forge server was sending a lot of spam. After inspection it turns out that there is a positive feedback loop in between sending mail requests to moderate spam on mailing list and ending up being considered as a spammer (i.e. you ask to moderate a message "Sell Ur Gold For Mo$$ney" every day and after a few day the forge is considered as a spammer).

Migration starting this evening, bzr disabled for now

Unfortunately the forge keeps rebooting. I suspect that it cannot hold the usual "bot" traffic with the amount of memory it has or one of the hard drive is failing.

Earlier today, I was connected while the Forge was under heavy load. This has often been the case before most of the recent reboot.

OCaml Forge maintenance

Sylvain Le Gall - 2014-10-15 06:58 - Site Admin

Recently the OCaml forge has required a lot of hardware reboots. The server is probably near end of life and I need to upgrade the whole infrastructure to a recent server.

Someone recently opens a bug against OUnit which contains a strange HTML attachment. This was a spam with an embedded page about whatever Life Insurance.
