AuthorizeNet Outage 5/1/2012

User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 01 May 2012 a leading credit card processor for many merchants was down today (May 1, 2012) from around 12:30pm CST until 1:15pm CST). may not be up for all users, but is back up for many.  There were two major issues.  

1) Their servers appeared to be under a Denial of Service attack, as no credit card requests were being processed

2) Any attempt to connect to was answered with a "Error 503 - Server Not Responding".

Many users on Twitter were reporting this issue (@AuthorizeNet).  This appeared to be a 45 minute outage.  For those that handle a lot of transactions, wonder how much money was lost during this outage.  At, we have a backup processor that we can switch too and this didn't impact us like it could have many others.
