As all may know, FinHeaven & Co was down the majority or today. What some may know is why that happened.
Well, this morning at about 12:30am EST, a worm-like virus was sent across the interent. It caused major chaos for may internet services and hosting providers. One hosting provider that was infected, hosts FinHeaven & Co. From what I've read on other message boards, about 10-15 large hosting companies were down for well over 14 hours.

To people that know hosting, the freakin Window systems caused all the problems.
Here is a quote in a Yahoo! article regarding the problems:
And people wonder why a lot of people just LOVE Microsoft...The attack sought to take advantage of a software flaw discovered in July 2002 that permits hackers to infect corporate database servers. Microsoft deemed the problem "critical" and offered a free repairing patch, but it was impossible to know how many computer administrators applied the fix.
Anyways... sorry for the inconveinence... everything should be cool now... :cool:
