Thank you for reporting the problem and sorry for the inconvenience. For the last few days, our colocation / network provider Hurricane Electric was hit with a massive DDoS attack, which affected their core routers performance. DriveHQ servers and systems were fine by themselves. Unfortunately, Hurricane Electric's network problem also affected us. So you might experience intermitten network problems for the last few days. The problem seems to be fixed now. For more information, you can also visit Hurricane's Twitter updates: http://twitter.com/#!/henet

Just want to further explain what is DDoS: http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/definition/distributed-denial-of-service-attack

A DDoS attack usually does not cause any security issues. It only causes the targetted website / device (in this case, Hurricane's core routers) to be overloaded with million of requests.
