    Woah, that was quick, WPyogi. Thanks for the links.
    I’ve heard about that. And that’s why I was worried in the first place.

    However, that didn’t answer my question. Is this popup something official from wordpress?

    It looks like it’s from your hosting provider.

    Yeah, sorry about that, I reread it more carefully after I posted it. It’s not from WordPress – more likely your hosting company has enabled tighter security. You really should contact them to see what’s going on in your particular situation.

    Hey Andrew and WPyogi,

    Thank you guys. I’ll contact my webspace support then. It’s not nice of them to just add additional security in the frontend without asking.

    I’ll keep you posted

    webhostingstatus.com is the status of services provided by Heart Internet, a UK web host. The page is white labeled & does not display a logo because many people using their services do not have a direct relationship with the host, but via a reseller.

    Your site is indeed hosted by heart Internet http://www.whoishostingthis.com/spiegelwelten.ch so be assured that the message is genuine and the change has been put in place for your protection.

    http://www.webhostingstatus.com/ should be your first port of call as a Heart Internet customer or a customer of one of their resellers to check server status. If you purchased your services via a reseller, the reseller can (and probably should) also display the content of that page on their own site, but with their own branding.

    Hey cubecolour,

    Interesting. I didn’t know my hoster was a reseller. But therefore it is. I’ve never heard of Heart Internet before, so that’s good to know. I’ll see what information I get from my hoster about that.

    Thanks again.
