Website / Servers down


#1

Hello,

Servers and website were down several hours before I wrote this after, update was happened broken same. Are we cool?

I’d assume Whonix is a semi-popular DDOS attack target for spooks paid by your tax dollars to frustrate people trying to uphold their inalienable right to privacy. See:

Note that onion services are not immune either, which is why when whonix.org is non-responsive, so is kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion usually. See:

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/24298

This seems to happen every few weeks. If it is a server-based issue, I’m sure @fortasse would know about it.

This was actually a downtime that our datacenter caused. It was outside our control, and as far as I know, unrelated to DDoS. It was just a configuration mistake.
