It went out in my town late last night. Spoke to some friends today and it's the same for them as well. I google'd around, but couldn't find any news on it.

However, I did find the following at www.facebookdown.com...

United States of America (reported 13 minutes ago) pittsburgh(x2) 55076(x1) pierce(x1) Tempe(x1) clarinda iowa(x1) san diego(x1) Sunnyvale(x1) Springfield PA(x1) York(x1) Tampa(x1) Reading(x1) greensboro(x1) Fontana (x1) North Myrtle Beach(x1) Canton(x1) eagle mi(x1) columbia(x1) queensbury ny(x1) Miami(x1) chicago(x1) plymouth(x1) Salina(x1) west liberty(x1) Maitland (x1) Wichita(x1) pikeville (x1) detroit(x1) berthoud(x1) Los Angeles(x1)


I found a way to access it by using a proxy program called "Ultrasurf", but since it's down for all my friends, pointless to even use it right now.

So, anyone else having problems connecting to it?

OMG... Santa really does exist!

Either that, or Chuck Norris took out the FB servers with a roundhouse kick.

I haven't had a facebook for awhile and I could never be happier for the past 7 months. People need to rest their brains for a little bit and go out into the wild! I have so much family on there but at the same time I think I need the solitude for awhile before I reactivate it.

It's a Festivus miracle!

Maybe I'll see my seventeen year old daughter this year!

How will the world spread their joy without facebook?!
Looks like we'll have to actually interact with each other.


Edit: I use facebook like I would a phone pretty much. Just to contact someone if I can't reach them by phone.

Ok, I think I "might" of found something. This is a news report video I found on yahoo, but I cannot confirm when it was posted.

I threw the link into google search and it has a "New" icon next to it and says it was posted 21 hours ago.

Can anyone else confirm this? Because in the video, it says that anonymous made a threat to take down facebook on Saturday, and guess what today is.

Here's the link
au.tv.yahoo.com...

edit: Ok, now I'm thinking that video is from the November 5th thing.. just a late video posting?

A little update to this. Well a big update really. It turns out to be a huge new worm that is going around. It changes your host file so it sets facebook on ignore.

No virus/spyware/malware scanner can currently detect it, mainly because those programs don't check your windows host file.

Is this anonymous's plan for taking down facebook? If you are wondering why I think they could be the cause of it, it is because I didn't see the usual hundreds of scam websites saying that you need their program to fix it, which are usually a virus themselves.

There is barely any information at all on this.

I did find a way to fix it, so if anyone else catches this worm, just message me and I'll let you know how to do it. If this worm gets big (as far as I know it is only affecting people around my town currently), I'll just post the solution as a reply in this thread.

I've also called a few local computer repair stores and told them about this, so hopefully it gets killed off before getting spread out further.
