Hi,

Having AdMuncher enabled I get redirected to a 403 page. If I exit Admuncher I can get to the page without a problem... Does Admuncher change a header or something?

Yes it does.

This server is blocking HTTP/1.0 requests.

They need to fix this immediately.

use this to confirm they are blocking HTTP/1.0

Tried it, and I get a 403 when using that site with Http/1.1.

When is Ad muncher going to be using 1.1 btw?

I can't say exactly.

Should be first half of this year though.

They still need to fix this though. It's literally a 5 minute fix if that.

Many websites are starting to block HTTP 1.0 requests. Apparently for security reasons. If you continue to rely on HTTP 1.0 for your product, it will rapdily become obsolete :( I hope you will fix this soon.

There is no reason to block valid HTTP/1.0 requests.

There is nothing inherently less secure about them.

99.99% of all sites accept them just fine.
