FBI Accidentally Pulls Plug On Own Servers

from the whoops dept

Apparently, the FBI’s website has been down for much of this morning, prompting fears that there had been some sort of malicious attack on their machines. However, the FBI claims that it’s their own mishandling of the servers that caused the problem. They’re trying to fix a misconfiguration in their domain name setup. They also go out of their way not to blame other technology vendors, such as Akamai who hosts some of their content. Basically, they’re saying that they screwed up their own servers and are working on getting it fixed.
