Silk Road discussion / maintenance
« on: April 23, 2013, 08:27 pm »
UPDATE (04/25/2013 0445 UTC): Silk Road is available at the moment.  This has been truly epic.  I pray this is the end for a while.  I need sleep.  I will make a summary announcement once I've had some rest and am sure this is behind us.

UPDATE (04/24/2013 2220 UTC): We're making progress.  The site has been open and available for about 15 minutes, but this is an arms race right now, and the attacker may still get the upper hand before we have our final victory.  I've paused autofinalizing, and will leave it that way for a few days after I feel everyone has had a chance to send their orders to the Resolution Center if they want to.  Also, image uploading doesn't work for the time being.

UPDATE (04/24/2013 1647 UTC): Nothing new to report, but I just thought I'd let everyone know that I am still here and we're doing everything we can to put and end to all of this.  I'm really proud to be a part of this community.  You all have been showing your class through all of this.

UPDATE (04/24/2013 1222 UTC): We are starting to get a handle on how the attack is being run.  It will likely take many hours to eventually overcome, but we are 100% committed to getting the site running in peak form again.  It is still possible to access here and there, so we are leaving the site open for those who want to try to gain access, but it will be tough until we can effectively counter the attack.

UPDATE (04/24/2013 0714 UTC): The downtime of the past couple days, and especially the past 24 hours has been confirmed to be due to a deliberate attack from what appears to be an individual.  There appears to be no security breach, only disruption of availability.  The attack appears to be DoS in nature and is likely an exploit at the Tor network level.  The site will be down or very slow until a solution can be found, which we will work tirelessly to find.  Thank you for your patience.

UPDATE (04/23/2013 2319 UTC): I'm terribly sorry for the poor availability over the last few days, and especially today.  I'm having to take the site down again and we will likely be up and down for a while longer.  Sorry I can't give you anything more specific, but we are working as hard as we can to find a solution.

We are doing some server reconfiguration to try to improve availability.  The site will be down while this is done, but I will keep you updated via this thread.  Thanks for your patience.

UPDATE (1000 UTC): The site is open, but pages are loading very slowly.  We are going to keep the site up while we try to solve this speed problem.

UPDATE (0842 UTC): We're back up.  Thanks for your patience as always.  Happy 420!

UPDATE (0800 UTC): Almost there.  Will update at 0830 UTC if we aren't back up.

UPDATE (0653 UTC): Getting close to being able to reopen.  Should be back up by 0800 UTC unless we run into any last minute snags.

Hash: SHA1

I'm closing the site for a few hours.  A couple of things happened on the backend that I am unsure about and I don't want to take any chances.  No problem has been confirmed, but something just doesn't smell right.  I will publish an update here before 0700 UTC.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (MingW32)

UPDATE (2216 UTC):  Looks like plan A worked.  Site is live again and should stay up.

I'm aiming to have us back up by 2300 UTC
