no access to rghost.ru - IWF or Putin ?


Trying to download a kernel extension from the 2nd URL on this page
http://netkas.org/?p=1053
I get this scary page from Plusnet's IWF cache !!! ( attached screenshot)
Looking on
http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/rghost.ru.html
I see the host is up and reachable from other points on the internet.
So - Is this entire host being blocked because of a faulty IWF blacklist or is it unreachable because of the current Crimean situation ?

That's the IWF cache. I'd suggest getting a ticket raised so our Ops guys can take a look.

I suspect this is actually a symptom of the DNS problems we have going on tonight.

Doubt it. The DNS issues are resolved for me yet I still can't get to that URL. If I switch to my BT Retail line, I can access the site without errors.
@disfroot, site should be back up now.

If you google rghost.ru and look at the image search results, you can see why the site is blocked or why it should be blocked...

Re: no access to rghost.ru - IWF or Putin ?

I am happy for my post to be deleted (if the mods would like). **I should have put a warning there and I apologise for that **
The very last thing I am trying to do is encourage people to search for that kind of thing.
I just wanted to point out why the site is probably on the IWF block list. I fully agree with it being blocked (even if there are some legitimate scripts/files being shared there).

It wasn't your post which was revolting it was doing what you suggested and looking at the results
I have no problem with your post at all
