Unable to upload images

I get a security error when I use the attachment option to upload an image file. Has something changed? Is this a problem on my end (I've tried both Chrome and IE)? I've been able to upload ok in the past.
Thanks

Please send us a screenshot of the error you are receiving and we'll look into it.

Hmm.. uploading the screen shot worked here. I'll try creating a fresh post instead of using REPLY. Thanks.

I just tried: 1) creating a fresh post, same error. 2) same as #1, using a fresh image file (.jpg), same error.

I'm still getting the same security error trying to post with an image. Last year I included images in several posts by using the "Attachment" option, but they were very small (<50k). Do larger images need to live elsewhere on the web, or in the gallery? If so, what's the limit? Thanks.

The site has been having issues the last week.
No doubt that's related.
Talked to the Admin last week, when there was no posts whatever possible for 3 days.

Thanks, I didn't think size was a problem ;). I also haven't been getting alerts for weeks.

I've given up on using the attachments option. I used Photobucket.

Now my other problem: I'm no longer getting notifications. Help?
