Anyhow, does anybody know what's going on with them? Their site is returning a HTTP code 500 (internal server error) and they've been offline for several days now.
Yesterday (Sep. 12th) they were online for a few hours, and mentioned that they've been targets of hacking attacks. They wrote they were working with their hosting provider to find out what was going on, only to be back offline a few hours later.
So, does anybody have any "insider's info" on the matter?
If it is indeed hackers who are bringing their site down, my conspiracy theory point in 3 directions:
a) CrApple and their fanboys, green with envy that they can't update their firmware as freely as we can, so they hire people who actually know a bit about computers to bring down samsung-updates.com
b) Samsung itself, because they are getting way too many warranty returns due to dumb noobs who flash a ROM on their phones and end up bricking it.
c) LG, Motorola and HTC fanboys, for the same reasons in (a), but they do it themselves. Their envy is because they don't get firmware updates in the same pace we do.
