Re: BT speedtester hacked ?

Yes, and that is what I can`t understand....  Undecided
when I run the links, they give weird "test errors"... yet when I run it from the bookmark on my page, it works fine....  Huh
Perhaps BT need to be told about it.... Roll eyes

No - simply altering the URL - the message is simply part of the URL, so you can alter it to say anything you like.

Well Well I came in this thread to see if I had this " So called " Problem with the speed test only to see that this threads a very LATE April fool Gag, Suppose it makes sense seeing as its been left in general Riff Raff, Very devious indeed.

No modified URL just straight from google search on "speedtester BT"

So whats gone on?
