    IIRC it was literally just a facebook page.

    That just means that they're trying to use CloudFlare, but the shared security certificate on that box hasn't updated yet to include the forums domain name. (You can't actually get to the site because it's down, but your connection to CloudFlare happens before then.)

    See, when it was just FA and FA's forums, I was thinkin' it was these dudes.
    But when I found out it was a multitude of sites? Nah, a bunch of kids couldn't pull that off.

    Depends on whether they can throw $$ at it and know where to go. Plenty of rich kids out there.

    These guys had some fun trying to troll some users on FAF's forums. Thing is, they didn't do very well; it became a sort of competition. FAF users would place friendly bets on who would be next and we laughed collectively at the articles they published. It was actually kinda fun.
    But they got bored and didn't post for a while, and their page was eventually removed from Facebook after reports from an FAF mod.

    This is why people have been thinkin' it was them when they attacked FA and FAF: they may hold a personal little grudge against the forum dwellers.
    Attacking all furry sites would, not only ruin their trolling fun even further, but also, make little sense. Why they'd even bother with all the effort.

    The forum was working for a day, then it went down too.

    I now have no avenue to know what's happening.

    We'll find a reason, or else realize that we don't need one.

    I think the FA twitter has some updates on it, but really it just says they are still working on it: https://twitter.com/furaffinity

    Dragoneer might also have some updates: http://www.reddit.com/r/furry/commen...ttacks/clb7w6b

    Well, this sucks. I just want this to be over with, so I can get back to my life. But hey, look at how effective this attack is, right? I mean, this is bigger than someone just opening a .BAT program and spamming a website, this is coordinated. If this is by some well known group, they why haven't they said anything?
