Yes we all know the drill. Mention it and if it is good it stops, if it is bad it happens.

Not what IST say - there may be more to come.

Description: UPDATE: Monday, April 30, 2018 2:20pm – This continues to be a sporadic ongoing issue and the network team is working to resolve the issue. There is no ETA at this time.

Yes around 10:0 PM PST
Description: UPDATE: Monday, April 30, 2018 3:38pm – The firewalls have been stable since 11:40am this morning. Users may need to check/restart services that could have hung during the outage.
IST staff are still working on the root cause of this outage. This evening after business hours at 10:00pm, the network team will troubleshoot further to fully restore network services.


P.S. Deleted didn't upchuck all over BOINC land telling us how horrible UC Berkeley is. We must that the good with the bad.

Just had to wait several minutes for the forums to open. Last time that happened and I reported that to David, he said something about network congestion. Have just reported it again.

I was going to say Web pages at Seti were very slow, but I find the same situation here.

Is there a common point?

Yes, Some router at Berkeley. Also found this site slow. Up and down issue again.

https://apnews.com/560acd4deca84b609c72055522e8ccc2/Sell-off-in-industrial,-tech-stocks-sends-Dow-down-400
NEW YORK (AP) — After a strong start, U.S. stocks abruptly sold off Tuesday after machinery maker Caterpillar said it doesn’t expect to top its first-quarter profit for the rest of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged as much as 619 points as investors feared that rising oil prices and other costs will slow down growth in company profits.

Here then: the Russians are coming! (to your computer)
https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/alerts/TA18-106A

This joint Technical Alert (TA) is the result of analytic efforts between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the United Kingdom’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). This TA provides information on the worldwide cyber exploitation of network infrastructure devices (e.g., router, switch, firewall, Network-based Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) devices) by Russian state-sponsored cyber actors. Targets are primarily government and private-sector organizations, critical infrastructure providers, and the Internet service providers (ISPs) supporting these sectors.

I guess you best send your work in to Seti while you still can, before their internet is no more. :)

So true. You might be shocked at how many people/places can't flash their boxes with an update. You would not be shocked at how many never change their default passwords. You would not be surprised by how many when they replace a device never change the default password. IoT is terrible, or as Martin would says IT is what we make it.

I hate to think but a law requiring any device that connects to the Internet to have a default password that is a serial number and a splash screen that requires a replacement running a dictionary check to prevent guessable passwords ...

What, no posts about the muppets and their recent actions?

Well, the Rump appointment to SCOTUS aligned with the liberal bloc. Maybe they should have confirmed Bama's guy?
