#6 DShield Login and reporting problems


Problems with DShield UserID handling seem to have been introduced over the last 24-36 hours. All attempts to login using the https://secure.dshield.org/login.php form simply return me to the same login form. These diagnostics are taken immediately following such a failed login attempt:

__utma - 165920683.1884857686.1164136184.1164136184.1164136184.1

My account obviously still exists, as using the same form to request a UserID reminder returns the expected ID.

Additionally 3 batches of logs were forwarded to DShield containing data for 21st November, each of which was acknowledged as normal. However the Daily DShield Summary report for 21st stated that no logs had been submitted. Anonymised copies of these E-mails are attached. Obviously I cannot check whether the logs were actually imported as I cannot log in currently.

    Login attempt sometimes gives respons:
    Table 'sessions.dshield' doesn't exist

    Problem occurs with both IE6 and Firefox 2.0

    This is a temporary issue that can happen whenever the database is too busy. If it happens again, also try to login with:
    email addresS: demo@dshield.org and userid: 11111
