Virus Scan broken, and Check Server Status issue

Post by secsecsec » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:47 am

I noticed that the Virus Scan action in Flagfox seems to be broken. I assume they've changed their website and the action doesn't make sense anymore. I don't use it myself, so doesn't bother me but thought I'd mention it.

Also, the 'Check Server Status' action is giving me odd results. Not a Flagfox issue in itself, but wondering if perhaps it should be replaced with 'DownForEveryone' - I know this has been discussed before. Anyway, my particular issue I came across is that I was checking https://flagfox.net and it told me it was down. It tells me it's down right now, which it clearly isn't as I'm using it!

http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/flagfox.net.html

Looking at it a bit closer looks like it's checking http://geoip.flagfox.net rather than https://flagfox.net. Is that an old redirect perhaps?

Another example is http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ubi.com.html

So I'm not sure how reliable this service is?

Yes, that doesn't look right, and yes http://geoip.flagfox.net was an old URL that was abandoned about 2 years ago when the site was hit by a large DDoS from Russia.
