    Great - they send me an email every day pushing new offers - yet surely when you really need an email is now, telling you that you're pissing your ad money away. It wouldn't be that hard to have an emergency email list would it?

    SC latest news: "Our advertisers (aka adscendmedia) have just informed us that they are currently under an attack, which has temporarily caused their website to crash. The issue began around 3:20 EST, and is currently still affecting them. Since their server is down many of our offers will not load and you will see a temporary decrease in earnings. They told us that their web host is working on it and should have the problem fixed soon."

    We're currently working on a fix - hang tight guys. This was of course not something we knew would happen. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Also, goldstrike4u, if you don't like receiving our daily emails with new offers - you can unsubscribe in your account once we are back up. We aren't "pushing" them on you - it has always been optional.

    No problem, I was just having a moan because I'd started an Adwords campaign.

    i would pause the campaign until further notice. our server is down again and will be unstable until a better solution is put in place or the attack stops.

    It's working fine at my end. And they sent me an email regarding this issue before...I hope everyone received similar kind of email. So no point to blame them anyway!

    We are down again today. We've been getting DDoS'd is why we have been unable to bring the server back online quickly. We have been working (constantly) with our host to block the attack.

    Jeremy, could you send out an email when a problem like this occurs from a second server? A simple template email and a one click control to send the emails could be set off so that we can disable offers from your site temporarily.

    Hey,
    We'll definitely plan for that for the future, yeah. Once we are back live though (which should be within a couple of hours) we will be behind layers of protection that should stop a DDoS (of reasonable magnitude).

    Is there any legal action that can be taken from this?
