Facebook, Paypal, Ebay, Channel 4, Hotmail all down – what’s happening?

17 Jan

I tried to sign in to Paypal when I got home to withdraw some money, but I couldn’t do it. I thought it was a little glitch and tried again..still nothing
Now it looks like a whole host of sites are down. Facebook, Ebay, Xbox, Hotmail, Channel4 – not to mention the imminent closing of Wikipedia and Reddit tomorrow.

What the hell is this about? I don’t understand. Is it in protest for SOPA? Is it the work of a large hacker group? Either way, people rely on these sites – some rely on Paypal and Ebay for their entire income. It’s not fair to punish innocent civilians for something the American government has done.

If anyone has any information as to why these sites are down, please comment.

Is the apocalypse among us?
