403 Cloudflare CAPTCHA

Postby VeNoMouS » Thu Dec 08, 2016 4:59 am

Hi there,

All of tonight I seem to be getting 403 cloudflare CAPTCHA's to any *.thetvdb.com URL, I know this was an issue a few years back looking at old posts on this forum... but why is this suddenly happening again?

I've been having the same issue for the last 24 - 48 hours.

I also started experiencing this today. I live in Australia and every internet connection I've tried (mobile, work and home) now requires submitting the Captcha. Interestingly, when I tried connecting via a few foreign VPNs it worked without the Captcha each time.

Mod says it is a temporary thing to deal with a DDOS.
