    Thread title says it all.

    “Security error occurred. Please press back, refresh the page, and try again.”

    This started happening for me yesterday afternoon, in multiple forums.

    Just tried to attach a screen capture of the error message, it’s a .PNG file. This time I did not get the security error message and the screen capture looks like it will properly display in this post. But a few minutes ago I could not post a screen capture in the SpaceX forum.

    Just tried to post a .PNF file (screen capture from my iPad) in the SpaceX forum and was not able to, got the same security error message. Weird.

    I just tried again to post a .PNG file in a SpaceX forum thread and got the security error.

    And then I tried to post the same file in this thread and got the security error.

    I guess it’s just me. :confused:

    I made a screen capture of the security error message I got just now trying to post that .PNG file in this thread and I was able to post it here. So the problem I am seeing is inconsistent.

    Is it always the same file that's doing it? There's probably a stream of characters/bytes in the encoded JPG file that's tripping the security page. Try converting the image to PNG or just resize it (smaller) and that should remove the coincidental string of offending bytes.
