This message greets ratebeer.com visitors today:
For the good of the community, we’ll pause now to let our security experts dig into the precious guts of our web server with the hopes they can make things clean very soon. I’ll post updates here later as I hear from the techs. Thanks for your patience (and no this page won’t do fun stuff on reload!) UPDATE: The problem has been isolated! We’re now in the process of cleanup, a code review and a restore. Seeya soon.
It seems like they will be back soon folks.
Ratebeer.com was down all yesterday evening and through the night. This morning when one tries to log in you get this message from Joet:
Sorry! Yes, I am bummed too.
Apparently the sites new server went down and they will need to rebuild. The message does say though that all data is safe. The message which scrolls as you click goes on to say:
We’re getting a lot of volunteer help this time, so we should be in ship shape a lot sooner.
You can still visit Rate Beer on Facebook. And while I am sad, it is nice to know it was a Windows product and not an Apple that took them down.
