Hi,

some minutes ago, two threads I clicked via Forum Spy would not open, and now I have two tabs with this message buried between all the other ones.
Sucuri CloudProxy - Backend Server timeout

What is going on?

I am sorry, but CloudProxy is unable to connect to the page you requested. It seems the backend server (where the site is hosted) is down and we do not have a cached copy to give to you. Please try again in a bit.
What can I do to fix it?
If you own the web site, please verify with your hosting company if your server is up and running. They might be doing a maintanence or being overloaded. Please wait a few minutes and try again. If the problem persists, open a ticket on our support page and we will troubleshoot: https://support.sucuri.net.

If you are just visiting the site, just wait a bit and it should be back soon. We apologize for the incovenience. If you have any question, email us at labs@sucuri.net.
Sucuri CloudProxy
CloudProxy is a Website Firewall from Sucuri. It stands between your site and the rest of the world and protects against attacks, malware infections, DDOS, brute force attempts and mostly anything that can harm it.

Not only that, but your sites get cached, speeding it up quite a bit. Interested? Visit http://cloudproxy.sucuri.net
I can read and all, but in previous down times I never saw that site, thus my horrible fear I have finally got infected by that battery virus I always joke about (this is a lame joke too, not an insult).

I just wanted to make sure, that this site is okay from your site. Otherwise I might have to do the unthinkable.

Have a great Sunday, if it arrives.

We occasionally get these warnings when there are server issues. It's a result of the upgrades arn put in place after the forums were attacked last year.

I'm getting this message on the homepage right now... Just me?
