    Innocent little 'ol me was surfing around trying to get info on the new phone I have --- a Sonyerricson K700i ( much reccommended ) --- so I was looking for the Sonyerricson web site. Did a Google and was given Sonyerricson.com - all well and good and loaded it up. Then thought I would be more country specific - so typed in Sonyerricson.co.uk. Instantly got a forbidden site warning come up on the page. But this one had the additional warning of telling me NOT to try / or repeatedly try to access the site again!! Not wanting to end up on the most wanted list or a pack of cards I haven't tried ----- but has anyone come across this before,and what does it all mean?? :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I've never seen that before. Nothing bad seems to happen when I compulsively hit reload.

    It's just a 403 error, nothing to get excited about :rolleyes:

    There's just no default page at that URL and directory indexing is dissabled, there for you get a 403.

    the 403 was written for someone doing a DoS attack.

    A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is an attack that floods the affected server(s) with so many bogus requests that it can't accept legitimate requests. A Distributed DoS (DDoS) is a DoS conducted with many computers sending bogus requests instead of one.

    You'll find lots of non-official but interesting info on your K700 (I have one too) at www.esato.com/board

    Basically a forum like this for Sony Ericsson phone lovers.
