July 15/16 2013 Downtime Information...

Well hey there again...

If you noticed Club Penguin 2 days ago, you would have seen it was down for a very long time...like the June 20, 2011 Downtime (I still remember that clown... :P).

If you want to know information about this downtime. You have gone to the right place. I found some information by somehow who posted it on the CP Wiki on a Thread. 

Also another note is that I wrote it on his words. I copied and pasted it on this blog of how he said it.

All right now there you go:

"About 7-8 hours before 1:56 AM when he servers went back up, Club Penguin was down for a very long time. People on Twitter started panicking and thought that CP was down for GOOD. Some people where saying comments like "Club Penguin is down! Its the end of the world!". People have reported asking @SpikeHikeCP and @Clubpenguin what is going on and basically they did not respond. About 2:00AM+ July 16th Both had reported that the servers are down and they are trying the best they can. By this time a tweet was spreading around by @WaltCP but spreaded the word by @swordfusion giving the link to @waltcp's tweet (Meaning @swordfusion didn't do it and was telling people that CP was hacked by teenagers) staing that "@polofield You should be ashamed of yourself. A Group of teenagers planned to shut down CP. Don't mess with our community again." About an hour or two from the tweet he posted Walt has posted, "I did NOT attack Club Penguin. A community I am a part of did however. I cannot attack CP, I wouldn't attack CP. And he also said, "Why did they do it? Disney have tried to rip us apart so many times. So they attacked." @SpikeHikeCP finally came online and tweeted to a few users who may have known something about what was going on and one of his comments for which he is talking to a user saids, "If you know nothing, tell us." Spike Hike Had followed them and made them DM him what the knew and he didn;t tweet back to anyone until they knew what was happening. As of this this was a hack attempt aka a DDos attack on Club Penguin. There is a HTML source within Club Penguin that was hacked and causes mostly all CPPS (Club Penguin Private Server)s to shut down and the HTML was triggering both CP and CPPS'. By the time of 1:56 AM July 16th was when the server's finally went online and the server least suspected to be full was server Blizzard leaving the 1st server only with 1 bar. The Following message is now by me aka Scirisk: I'm sure many of you are very curious as to what happened yesterday, and why there was so much drama; I'm going to do my best to explain the situation. Club Penguin experienced a large-scale Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack almost all of yesterday. Many people tried to claim credit for it, but the true attacker's identity is still unknown to even us (the staff). People were quick to point fingers at each other and try to claim credit for it, even though they were most likely not involved in the situation whatsoever. Later on in the evening, two of our members, Thomas and Bryson, decided to tweet to SpikeHikeCP (ClubPenguin moderator) and tell him that they had information regarding the attacks. They did not have intentions to give out any names, however, Rile5.com was displayed on one of their profiles. It is unknown whether or not the attacker they claim to know of is even a member of this community, but people were very quick to assume so, and jumped on them for trying to contact the moderators. Not too long later, Rile5's guest list was populated with people using Amazon servers as a proxy, stalking out random profiles. This wouldn't be too odd, except that most of them happened to be viewing the exact same profile. Thomas and Bryson feared what their peers might think, so they decided to split once their tweets were revealed. I don't think it was right for everyone to assume that they were trying to "rat" on Rile5, as they never stated where the attackers they have information about were from in the first place. Not too long after that occurred, someone named "Spike_Hike" joined JRCx (An IRC server owned by jamie). This was, however, NOT the real SpikeHike, but rather his friend Trainman1405. He wasn't smart enough to realize that he left his client's real name as "Devin", which is Trainman's first name. I guess he thought impersonating his friend would be intimidating, but he sounded more like a child than the "pookies" you'd find in the Pet Shop. He didn't really say anything important; all he did was attempt to insult us the entire time and tell us that the "DISNEY STAFF ARE ON IT," which is completely irrelevant to us since none of us really care about them or their game. After he realized none of us cared about him and decided to leave, he tweeted this. Apparently he thought visiting an IRC server and insulting random people would magically fix the game. Ironically, the game was still going up and down hours after he posted that. See edit It is not known whether or not the Club Penguin staff knew about this website prior to these events, but they surely do now. Do not be alarmed though; there's not much they can do except idle here as guests. Rile5 does not host any of Club Penguin's mediaserver, which is the only illegal part of a CPPS, so their options are extremely limited. We urge everyone to exercise caution when making claims. Many people tried to take credit for the attacks, but they did so without knowing that Club Penguin was extremely desperate to find out who did it. The people who tried to take credit actually made their work 1000x harder, which is pretty funny to be honest. Anyway, I thought it would be better if I cleared everything up instead of leaving you all in the dark wondering what happened. Feel free to respond with any questions.
Trainman just tweeted this, stating that he was impersonated. However, one of the points of my post is still relevant: don't make claims that can get you into trouble.
Also, About 2+ hours ago from 5:36 PM July 16th 2013, Mech Mice, a game by the creaters of CP aka Rsnail and Screenhog was offline for a very long time and @Mechmice gave out a message very similar to @clubpenguin 's message when they known their servers where down. The server's on Mech Mice are still not up to this point and this page will be updated once everything is back up."

Well you see it now. Now you know the truth behind all of this. O.O
