Mashable.com did not open on my Computer, So I just checked out the Twitter Search whether was it down for just me or there were many others like me facing the same problem. To my surprise, there were a lot of people like me, who were not able to open Mashable.com
After about 2 minutes, all of us started seeing a message saying “Error Establshing Database Connection”
Now, The message has dissapered but a blank page is opening when we try to open Mashable.com
It seems that the Hacker Group called Gnosis who has taken credit for Hacking into the Gawker Email Accounts has done the same to Mashable too. Mashable seems to be Hacked!
I will keep you updated regarding what happens to Mashable! Stay tunes as this post will be updated.
Update: Mashable.com seems to be back. Lets wait and watch if there was any Database error!
Update: The Community Manager & Social Strategist at Mashable, Mr. Vadim Lavrusik confirmed that Mashable.com was not hacked! It was just facing some downtime issues.
Sorry for the False Alarm guys!!
