Well, maybe not million dollar, but probably worth at least a few hundred BTC.

million dollar question  Undecided

I wanted to see how many active users that were on.

I heard a few other places went down as well.

I don't know. sshing into the server always timed out, so I couldn't investigate. My guess is that it was caused by a lot of traffic.

I bet man, sent it soaring through the roof.

You think the the pw encryption had anything to do with it as such a large amount hit the server at once? Since it is technically new to the software? Or atleast to us? Or new to your hardware?

Gosh, to bad the user count got wiped or didn't have a chance to be used today. Would have been exciting to see.

There was a news story recently where a bunch of traders were ddos'ing news sites to stop the flow of information and give them an advantage in the market.

Could that be what happen here?

I doubt it. Hashing one password takes only one-twentieth of a second, and it only happens when someone logs in.

shortly after bitcointalk was down, mtgox went out too, strangely mtgoxlive was responding although feeds were frozen for a significant period of time

btw MTGOX, if you're reading this, when are you going to fix live part of mtgoxlive site?

So 20 simultaneous login attempts per second with random credentials is all it takes to lock up a core?  Hopefully you at least limit login attempts per ip so they have to use a botnet or a bunch of proxies.

I think it's more likely a problem with MtGox, they've always had issues with heavy volume. God forbid anyone actually use their exchange.

+1 The outage just happened to be right as the order book took on MASSIVE shuffling.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
