The site currently shows:

Quote
We have detected a security breach. Services are temporarily suspended until we have thoroughly investigated the situation. We will resume services as soon as possible.

There's currently no further information.

Paymium (Instawallet's operator) uses cold storage.  It is possible that the delivery of your coins could not complete because there were insufficient funds in their hot wallet -- regardless of any security issue.

Access to their cold storage may be restricted to occurring only during business hours (being that the private keys are stored in a vault at a bank).

I don't know that this is the current situation, but this has been the situation in the past when withdrawal requests were delayed.

If this security incident included a loss of coins, then obviously what I've described above may be moot.

Hm, no memtion on bitcoin central if instawallet is also not affected?

I mean, I have/had .025 in instawallet, so not a huge loss, only money I'd grabbed from faucets etc.

Would be annoying for me if it was gone, but not a huge issue as I figured they'd run into a security issue.
