    I've been trying to connect to both all night and haven't had any luck. I've been talking to a few regulars on TPU via TS and they cannot log in either. If you are already in you are ok but if you sign out you might be FUBAR.

    Has anyone got any issues?

    connected about an hour ago, cant now. I'm certain it'll be resolved quickly. having a LARGE storm in the Eastern US, dunno if THAT can be a factor.

    Yep, Steams down here. Odd that both are down, wonder if they are both based in the same datacenter...

    I've been on Steam for the past few hours, playing some Dead Space. I can see my game library and load a game, but I just checked and can't connect to the store.

    Friends list is down, can't talk to people. :(

    You can, just takes determination at least for Steam. Origin seems no luck.

    Did not steam just kick off a new sale? As for Origin I have no idea if they boosted traffic too.

    It doesn't matter if you have been signed in or not. People are getting kicked and are unable to log back in. Just happened to one of my cousins.

    Already been confirmed as an attack from DERP at least on Origin, I imagine they're doing the Steam attack as well.

    Edit - https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling These guys.

    I was on a few hours ago, looking at the sale. Bought Gary's Mod, no problems. Haven't tried to log back in. Been busy getting the Humble Bundle and such. I don't know why I buy all these games, they are great deals but, I have no time to play!! Hopefully, that will eventually change, hopefully. Anyways, I hope Steam fights the intrusion and comes out safe!

    Are they still going after Phantoml0rd or some new twitch streamer or are they just making random targets now?

    I believe they quoted another Twitch user earlier on their twitter. Funny how much these random groups get away with, usually scratch free.

    I can log in and out of Steam just fine and play games. However, the store times out with an error message.

    EDIT: the store is now working fine.

    Great more "noble" hackers. I hope they toss these guys in jail and throw away the key. Entitlement idiots.

    Noble my ass. Taking a Twitch streamers personal information and posting it online is anything but noble especially with how willing people are to abuse that information.
