  • Why AVSIM down repeatly?

    Why the avsim down repeatly for a few days since? It doesn't work properly when I click it. It won't loading. Sometimes it works but it went down again back and fourth for a few days. What's going on with that server or programmers doesn't know how to fix properly? Aren't they low experience to fix program? They should find someone who has good expert with server system to fix properly quickly. Or just computer getting old? What's going on?

    I haven't had a problem with it. Works now.

    I'm sure they have a staff capable of handling stuff that happens to their servers.

          Heck no, both AOL and IE aren't working. Something is wrong with AVSIM.

              I do not like firefox too much space HD. AOL or Internet Explorer does not work with AVSIM. All applications or any websites are fine. Don't you try click on file library? Did you click any item selection? All are not working. Still down at 1545CDT.

                Both work fine for me, although IE is significantly slower with it.

                  AVSIM might forgot to update Windows internet explorer 8.0 now. I just updated but still extremely SLOOOOOW! Something is wrong with avsim I'm sure it is. All other sites are fine and download fine except avsim.

                      OK that's relief.. nothing do with my computer. It causes by avsim's server. We have to wait tomorrow return business hours. They will have to fix it.

                      Hope you a good week.

                          Library Update

                          As maybe I am not the only one who worries about this ingenious source, I like to give you an update.

                          After weeks of struggling with a variety of issues with the File Library system, we have today taken the library offline for overhaul and redistribution to another server. We do not know how long this down time will be. We appreciate your patience while we fix known issues and bring the library back up to full performance. This also means that the daily file update email sent to thousands of readers will not be sent until the system is brought back online. Thank you for your patience and understanding. "

                          And I wanna say something to the people who keep the library running. I wish you a lot of power to stand this work. Go on, break all the problems, we need you.

                            Avsim has now been destroyed!

                            Today, AVSIM was destroyed by a hacker. Both of our primary servers were hacked and the partition tables destroyed, and that will be very difficult to overcome. I won’t speculate on who did it, but we will have a forensic done on our disks and scrutinize the logs to validate our suspicions.

                            I would appreciate if you could post the following as a news item or announcement on your websites or forums. Nels and Francois, I know we have been competitors, but I would very much appreciate you posting this on your web sites, if you could.

                            PRESS RELEASE: AVSIM Hacked!!

                            Tom Allensworth, CEO and Publisher of AVSIM, today issued the following announcement; “We regret to inform the flight simulation community that on Tuesday, May 12, AVSIM was hacked and effectively destroyed. The method of the hack makes recovery difficult, if not impossible, to recover from. Both servers, that is the library / email and web site / forum servers were attacked. AVSIM is totally offline at this time and we expect to be so for some time to come. We are not able to predict when we will be back online, if we can come back at all. We will post more news as we are able to in the coming days and weeks."

                            Best Regards,
                            Tom Allensworth

There's speculation in their temporary forums that some of the site may be saved after forensics are done on their servers, but it kind of shocking and sad that 13 years and 4 terabytes of information were wiped out clean by a hacker. Wonder why the didn't back up the information to an external source, they basically used 2 servers holding the same information and both got wiped clean! In addition, I'm curious to see if it was an inside job.
