Chowhound down evening of Jan 21 - returns giving me access to another user's profile

Breadcrumbs | Jan 22, 2013 03:38 PM

Around 8pm yesterday evening (EST) I started experience issues accessing CH. My Profile page wasn't loading and then when it did load, I'd been logged out. When I attempted to login again I rec'd a message on the login page advising of an "unexpected error" Finally, the site went down all together and I wasn't able to access any area of Chowhound, pages wouldn't load, the screen was white.

I could access the chow.com home page (the page would load) however clicking on any link took me to a blank (white screen) page.

The "Trending Now" info on the chow.com home page was static.

Later in the evening when I clicked on my own bookmark for my Profile page, the profile of another user loaded.

I find it disconcerting that I was given access to someone else's profile and would like to understand why this happened and what is being done to protect the information that we provide on this site.
