pushing the panic button
Sorry to TMO members to whom I dashed off a quick email bearing the title, “phpBB critical error on TMO.” The email went on to say that a critical phpBB error brought down TMO article comments and all forums, which I witnessed at about 3:30 PM EST todat. In any case, by the time the emails were sent, all of TMO was back up and running as normal.
My bad for assuming the worst; however, with new variants of the Sanity worm targeting all PHP-based websites , I figured better safe than sorry.

There was an overload in the server, but it quickly resolved. I too saw the error, but thank you for taking the time to let the TMO Staff know.
