Seven days after Pastebin tweeted that ‘CNN, FoxNews, Yahoo! News, Mashable, TechCrunch, NYTimes, Bloomberg, Engadget and many more’ helped in creating their busiest day ever for the code and text sharing website, Pastebin has suffered an outage saying ‘under heavy load right now, sorry…But we are working on it!’
The outage could have been caused by a post in Pastebin with details of a security bug in Dropbox which allowed anyone to log-in to an account just by using an email-address. Furthermore, LulzSec often publishes details of hacks and press releases on the website.
Edit: It’s back up 7.00 GMT
