I believe that is what we commonly refer to as "The Internet"!

Yeah, I was watching the game in the upper left of my screen and "page cannot be displayed" in the lower right?! Fortunately, the outage wasn't long enough for the DT's to set in!

I noticed ATS not loading, thought it was on my end.

I hope everything works out okay with this ATS attack (for the ATS admin, not the attackers, lol).

quite alot in "cycles"... As we grew over the past three years we noticed that every so often, a series of very disturbed and obviously BORED people who need a life attempt to hack into our servers or admin panels...

You'd think we had credit card numbers in a data base or something.
WHAT in the world is there of value that is worth risking jail time over here?!

Alas, not everyone has common decency, ethical behavior and mature thinking among their list of qualities...


The saddest part of this is the fact we have had to set up security for this site that rivals what one would expect on a merchant site where people's REAL financial information (i.e. credit crad numbers, bank account numbers, etc...) is uploaded.

All this for a site that is NOTHING but the free exchange of information. I know that information is power and valuable but it won't buy anyone a new Ipod Nano or a new car(!)...


The only motivation I can see for this activity is the hope of being able to stick one's tongue out and go "Nyaa Nyaa I got your site messed up!"


THAT is a sure sign to me that somone needs a life!

Calm down everyone. Obviously, the site is working now. I'm sure when more is known about what happened more information will be dished out. Take a chill pill, do a puzzle, read a book, or travel someplace far away.

Check?

I just want to let it be known that I did NOTHING with the admin panel today, or for several days, for that matter!
