    The tweet from their official account says the word 'Shutdown' so i guess that's the end of Popads?

    Really surprising to see Popads shutting down after all the great work Tom did recently to counter upcoming challenges.

    It does not seem like any data was stolen. We are working on restoring services. No ETA at this moment.

    It seems like a hard DDOS attack , if you ping popads.net you will receive " TTL expired in transit "

    This is not a DDOS. It is security incident which resulted in data loss. We are working on restoring data.
    I took down all PopAds IPs for security reasons (before I knew nature of the problem) in order to prevent any further potential damage.
    Right now I could bring it back, but until we restore main database cluster, there is just no point to do that.

    Good news is that we checked servers traffic charts and it does not seem like any data was transferred outside(stolen). I will be updating mostly on Twitter page.

    Also, adserving is stopped (as main cluster handles balances/budgets). We are fully offline at this moment.

    Guess that means I can't report and due to the fact even the mail servers are gone.

    Mailservers are not gone, but that does not matter - you won't get reply right now anyway. Not to mention we are most likely flooded right now by emails saying that PopAds is down.

    I just started loving it and saw this terrible news! Today I just withdrew for the first time after my hard work and it waited for me 27+ hours and saw this message! OMG, I wish my money will not vanish and popads.net will not end their business. Best of luck Popads.net team, go for a win against evil people.
