    I can't access my Photobucket account! Is it possible to hijack a URL?

    I tried to access photobucket.com and everytime I do, it diverts me to this address:

    http://www.atspace.com/dedicated-web...b_hosting.html

    Anybody ever type a known URL into your browser and been taken to another website?

    Anybody heard anything about Photobucket being jacked?

    Thanks for any help guys (and gals)... I don't know that much about this stuff.

    Sorry, Charlie. Mine seems just fine.

    "Sorry, Charlie" made me giggle a little.

    Um. I just logged into mine and its ok. You might want to delete your cookies for photobucket and try logging in again.

    I know. It slipped out before I realized it, and then I decided to let it stay anyway. I haven't said that in years!

    Charlie,
    You might want to try going to www.photobucket.com and try to log in the normal way. If you can't, then click the "Forgot Password" and reset it.

    If that still doesn't work, click the contact us on the Photobucket page and report the problem.

    They should be able to help you.

    Good luck my friend. Let us know how it works out.

    Re: I can't access my Photobucket account! Is it possible to hijack a URL?

    I know that something similar to this used to happen a lot with MySpace. When you typed in your password on the front page of MySpace, but made an error, you would be sent to a new page. This new page was made to look like a regular re-log-in page, but it wasn't. It was a fake page that allowed someone to phish for your password. Thus, your password and username would be stolen and your profile would be hacked. This is one example of log-in pages being hacked. I'm really not sure if this is the case here though....

    For what it's worth I've been having this exact problem today, all the hosted images on my ebay listings disappeared and every link even associated with photobucket.com either gets a server error message or this hosting site you posted a link to.

    Well if I find anything out I'll post again. I tried clearing my cache and cookies, scan etc etc, nothing works

    Re: I can't access my Photobucket account! Is it possible to hijack a URL?

    It should be OK now. This is from their customer support yesterday.

    On Tuesday afternoon, some users that typed in the Photobucket.com URL were temporarily redirected to an incorrect page due to an error in our DNS hosting services. The error was fixed within an hour of its discovery, but due to the nature of the problem, some users will not have access to Photobucket for a few hours as the fix rolls out. It is important to note that only a portion of Photobucket users encountered the problem and that no Photobucket content, password information or other personal information was affected by the redirect.

    Well, mine's not OK. It's worse now than last night. I can't access my account at all now, and all my pictures (most of which are posted on MiceChat) are now GONE!

    Re: I can't access my Photobucket account! Is it possible to hijack a URL?

    try flushing your DNS to see if that helps

    On Windows XP:
    - Start -> Run -> type cmd
    - in command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns
    - Done! Your Window DNS cache has just been flushed.

    On Windows Vista:
    - Start -> type cmd in the 'start search' field
    - in command prompt, type ipconfig /flushdns
    - Done! Your Window DNS cache has just been flushed.

    Also make sure you clear your cache and cookies.

    After you've done all that, reboot your computer.

    If it doesn't work.
    See if you can go to this link to contact them

    Thanks Mike. Everything is in flux right now... Just in the last coupla' minutes the pics came back! I should probably wait for the dust to settle before worrying anymore about it.
