Gmail is down

Posted on January 13, 2010. Filed under: Random |

It’s 5:01pm EST time, the google gmail is down right now. According to bloomberg news, google and 30 other silicon valley IT companies are attacked by highly sophisticated hackers during the last months. This gmail server down could possibly caused by a hacker attack.

I’m using the Internet explorer. The error message is:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

  • Internet connectivity has been lost.
  • The website is temporarily unavailable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
  • The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website’s domain.
  • There might be a typing error in the address.
  • If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

I tried to ping gmail.google.com under command line, the ping works.

I tried to nslookup gmail.google.com, the DNS request timed out, therefore, I guess this is a DNS related hacker attack to the google mail server.

————————————————————–

There are many weird things about this email.

Firstly, there’s no link to the company’s website.

Secondly, Google find a “TDR team”, which is totally different from what the sender described.

Thirdly, instead of sending from the company email, the email is sent by hotmail with a strange name, a way spammers usually take. 

Fourthly, as I check the who is data base, the domain name is registered a few days ago.

This email reminded me of another post.

The following is the result from who is database:

Oct 03, 2009. Is the evony server down?

Posted on October 3, 2009. Filed under: Ad-Hoc, Random |

Now it is EST. 12:40, Oct 03, 2009.

I was in the Evony game 10 minutes ago when suddenly the game had no response.

I haven’t been able to log in the evony server from then on. The error message is: “Network connection error, please refresh your page and try again.”

Anybody else get the same problem?
