TL;DR: CoinBr will be back online in few hours.

To summarize the situation, MPEx was under DDoS that started 2.5 days ago, but it continues trading via proxies and other avenues. One of them, and one that became quite prominent, is mpex.coinbr.com . So maybe that was the cause why the DDoS attack yesterday extended to coinbr. However, it took 6 hours for BitVPS staff to start doing anything about the problem, another 2 hours to confirm that yes, the DDoS is targeted to coinbr (by that time their whole swiss DC became inaccessible by any means), and they were unable to do anything about it further till the attack subsided by itself 10 or so hours later.

We do have recent database backups, and started to rebuild the server elsewhere (live.coinbr.com is already up ), but accessing the old VPS would save us plenty of work. Unfortunately most recent configuration was not backed up and would needed to be recreated from scratch. The access was not possible till today partially due to attitude of BitVPS staff (to paraphrase phungus, "look what did you cause, we aren't turning your vps on anymore. bitvps is not that kind of hosting, go to rackspace instead").

So until now I couldn't give any progress or estimates, sorry to leave you in the dark. At last we have everything we need and the path is clear.

EDIT: As of 20:30 UTC, we're fully functional again, orders placing, everything.

Online in readonly mode (no orders can be placed/canceled etc.), full service will resume shortly.

UPDATE: coinbr.com broker is fully functional. If you access it and see just "Hello!" that is amazon load balancer,just reload the page.

Both live.coinbr.com and mpex.coinbr.com will work when MPEx will finish rebulding their DC, which is promised to be finished shortly. Making MPEx webinterface available publicly is too risky in current situation, so only paying CoinBr customers can enjoy this privilege.

Informations from MPEx.

Another DDoS came, CoinBr may be intermittently inaccessible or load only partially, while we are tuning the configuration.

Sorry for another downtime, looks like amazon ec2 wasn't so lucky decision, again :'( EDIT: It was mostly between monitor and chair this time.

MPEx situation wrap up: http://polimedia.us/trilema/2013/mpex-ddosed-an-epic/ . mpex.co should finally return online anytime now.
