X-Plane.org Site Down

Recommended Posts

Probably they are trying to recover from a hack. Sadly very, very common, I think two weeks ago that meat company payed 10 millions USD. 🤢

Yeah, its been down 10+ hours. Not sure what the correct punishment would be for hackers like that? Looks like finally governments are starting to pay attention (after that pipeline thing)...

@Janov:

Knowing you're still alive and well brings me great comfort...

Sooner or later they'll get it sorted out. In the meantime I realize how dependent I am on the site.

OK, I admit it, I'm an X-Plane junkie.

Be well and see you in the forums.

Roger

Per the Org's Twitter account, it thankfully is not a hack but just a tech issue. See below...

Thanks @mgchristy!

Power outage, eh?

Perhaps Austin is diverting power for one of his pet projects...

Hi Roger,

Its either that or cryptocurrencies finally using up too much power! 😄
