UPDATE:
A DOS was confirmed in this post.

 

With the few posts Ive seen pop up the last few days about Anon taking aim at ATS this recent service error seems to be happening at a strange time. Coverage of the power outage in So Ca and other rumors flying about issues with cell communication back east could this be the flare or something else? Just opening a thread to garner opinion.

Yep 503s here too.

Cheers

P.S. And if this is a hack, anyone wearing one of those fecking masks had better look both ways before crossing the street.

There seem to be many other sites dealing with alternative news and other data "sources"..(torrents aheemmm) that seem to be suffering the same problems. more so than usual that is. yes every site has occasional bugs, however so many in the same period, with the same "vein" of users lets say. Just seems odd is all I am saying.

No Idea as to why, Ive always found ATS servers to be reliable. but here is an exact definition.


HTTP Error 503 - Service unavailable Introduction The Web server (running the Web site) is currently unable to handle the HTTP request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. Some servers in this state may also simply refuse the socket connection, in which case a different error may be generated because the socket creation timed out. 503 errors in the HTTP cycle Any client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) goes through the following cycle when it communicates with the Web server: Obtain an IP address from the IP name of the site (the site URL without the leading 'http://'). This lookup (conversion of IP name to IP address) is provided by domain name servers (DNSs). Open an IP socket connection to that IP address. Write an HTTP data stream through that socket. Receive an HTTP data stream back from the Web server in response. This data stream contains status codes whose values are determined by the HTTP protocol. Parse this data stream for status codes and other useful information. This error occurs in the final step above when the client receives an HTTP status code that it recognises as '503'. Frank Vipond. September 2010. Fixing 503 errors The Web server is effectively 'closed for repair'. It is still functioning minimally because it can at least respond with a 503 status code, but full service is impossible i.e. the Web site is simply unavailable. There are a myriad possible reasons for this, but generally it is because of some human intervention by the operators of the Web server machine. You can usually expect that someone is working on the problem, and normal service will resume as soon as possible. Please contact the system operators of the Web site (e.g. your ISP) to determine why the service is down. They will be in a much better position to help you than we are for this type of error.

I was thinking that, my wife works at PETCO and at 3:30 today (same time as the outage started being reported I believe) all of the store computers went down, all of corporate including phone communication was unavailable. Also other store started calling to see if my wife's store was experiencing the same thing.

I just got the dreaded 503 message.

Why exactly is Anon taking aim at ATS? Did they discover which agency ATS is connected?

yeah ive been getting that alot lately mostly news sites and altsites such as this website. i even got it twice as i was clicking reply it did it twice after i got onto this post.. weird, it could be something as sinister as dl/delteing mass amounts of data or something as innocent as power outages on the west coast (mabye that were the servers are locted) something sinister is afoot.
