It looks like it's been offline for about 4 hours-- I just woke up, and the server's drive died, so I'm restoring from a back-up. It'll be up within an hour.

EDIT: It's back up! I restored from a ~four day-old backup, and I tried to restore as much from the failed drive as I could, but you might notice a file or two missing. I'll start making daily incremental backups.
Sorry about the down-time, mates.

It was definitely drive-failure-- it was an HDD, and you could hear it die, jajaja. But I will look into a UPS, it's a good idea.

Nope, but this is the 3rd time in the past month. Kinda frustrating since we put all our eggs in that basket.

I spoke with jadedctrl about some security issues on coinsh.red. Some of them were never fixed (and allowed for limited server access, which is pretty serious). I wonder if it has anything to do with that.

If you're that guy who PM'd me, I took care of those issues immediately. I told you in my response, mate. (Thanks again, btw, for bringing them to my attention)

Right, but i wrote back to you with some new ways to exploit it, after your patch, which, last time i checked, was still there.

(not that I don't appreciate the work you do on coinshred, it's an awesome site!)

Looks like I was wrong-- I have already taken care of it. I was worried for a second there, haha.

Yea, this has been a bad month. Power cut out for a few hours a couple weeks ago, and then I was setting up a firewall the other week for about an hour.

Still transitioning to a new encrypted drive.
coinsh.red files can still be accessed (/p/, like normal), but nothing can be uploaded.
I'd wager 20:00 UTC as the latest before everything's back to normal.
