Photobucket glitch sends some users to another site

Glitch keeps some Photobucket users from accessing the site temporarily on Tuesday.

Some Photobucket users trying to access the site on Tuesday afternoon were sent to an incorrect page as a result of an error in the site's DNS hosting services, according to an e-mail from the Photobucket support team.

The error was fixed within an hour, but some users were not expected to regain access to the site for a few hours as the fix was rolled out.

"It is important to note that only a portion of Photobucket users encountered the problem and that no Photobucket content, password information or other personal information was affected by the redirect," the e-mail said.
