I just about to post this. Looks like they've been hacked. Oddly, ernährung-leicht-gemacht.de doesn't even exist and elg.de is a respectable steel recycling business that appears to be completely unrelated. Huh

Nope. Look closer. It actually links to elg.de. I've just notified ELG Haniel Gruppe about it. If that email address is for real, obviously one of their employees is behind it. I'm not sure how dumb you have to be use your company-provided email to perpetrate a scam, though it wouldn't be the first time that's happened.

I missed all the fun, bitcoincharts is simply unavailable for me at this moment.

This is a good time to think about the fact that lots of bitcoin-related services rely on bitcoincharts API. There is a domino effect whenever they go down.

Another thing to think about is that bitcoincharts are in the preparing the "pro" paid version of their service, with powerful trading tools. The hack may be related.

I was also thinking about these two facts.

Looks like the site has been restored. Does anyone know what happened?

Provider (Hetzner) messed the routing up. I couldn't even reach the server and the support didn't understand the problem ("Ping works fine so your server is up").

The site you saw seems to be served from 176.9.79.205 while bitcoincharts.com is 176.9.79.196.
