View Full Version : Strange message received when trying link

August 25, 2001, 18:11
I just tried a link in the "Reviews" section , topic title: "Williams arms receivers" given by Dwight@www.williamsarms.com & got this message:

Hack attempt logged: attempting to open topic file that is not in proper format.
Please use your browser's back button to return.

What's the deal w, this?

I got the same message a min ago! Strange because I thought it worked earlier today!
FXE :confused:

edit It doesn't work because of the period at the end! Try this one!

Thx FXE, your link worked.

Still a strange message. Not sure if I'm being told I'm hacking or if I'm being hacked. Probably neither just some kinda glitch in the software. :eek:

This means that somehow or another the topic file was corrupted or you were trying to get to it thru an incorrect url. This is what brings up the hack error. The board software think's you're trying to do something you're not supposed to be doing.

If the error comes up again, let me know.
