Bt Broadband Down Across Uk - Hacked?

Recommended Posts

Mega problemo. At one point the helpline message was "we have a major technical problem and cannot take your call. Please call later"... So it was all buggered. Back up and running in the last five minutes.

Software update?

Cleaners unplugged the router to plug in the vaccuum cleaner?

Bob from IT, who was fired last week for no longer being prepared to work 26 hours a day, decided to take out BT before jumping off Tower Bridge?

Too many people trying to download the same pron photo at the same time?

BT are now saying, according to Sky News, that it was not a hack.

A conspiracy theorist with a loathing for the EU might suggest that having the nations largest broadband supplier go down, just a few hours after the terms of the 'great renegotiation' were announced, would mean that the people could only be spoon-fed the MSN output, rather than read facts or opinion about it from elsewhere..

Mmmmmm

That's why I use short wave radio to talk to people. As Mr Tulip points out, I did inherit a bog load of those Tolkein Ring cards, but they only talked to Elven servers, who left Middle Earth at the end of the Third Age. :blink:

Seems to be a registration / login issue.

If you have kept your modem on then you appear to have been fine. If you have turned it off and then on then there was a problem registering on the network.

If you still have problems the first thing to do would be to turn your modem off for 2 minutes and then switch it back on.

I can see you know all the old tricks! :blink:

It was playing up here, in the middle of the midlands. BT have been up to some funny business with dns requests for some time http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11464.0 They stepped it up a notch at the beginning of january, when it became effectively pointless to change to opendns or google public if you have a BT contract and homehub. Maybe there were problems implementing the govt. plans to censor the internet ?
