I noticed that when clicking on any project from the projects tab of this site, the URL is no longer lumberjocks.com, but an IP address of 50.115.35.242, and when viewing the project, I am no longer logged into Lumberjocks. I hesitate to call this a hack, but it could be a vector of attack, replacing links on a web site to connect you to another one which looks identical, and steals your login credentials.

But, in actuality, it’s probably just an error in the web site itself. Anyone else notice this?

All it did is route you to the backend of the website at the actual IP address. Sometimes that happens with hick ups during the IP request when you click on a link.

50.115.35.242 – TCPIPUTILS.com
www.tcpiputils.com/browse/ip-address/50.115.35.242
ISP is WebNX, Inc. (AS18450). Domains hosted on 50.115.35.242, lumberjocks.com, homerefurbers.com, gardentenders.com. All details on tcpiputils.com.

Yea, I didn’t bother doing an nslookup, but it seems fixed now anyway.

Have your say...
