“By this point, it was Dec. 21, the day when things went seriously wrong. At about 8:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time, Pi-Web technical officer Ole Tange got an alarm that the server was down, he told TPMmuckraker. But instead of just killing service for enviro-canada.ca and ec-gc.ca, ServerLoft had turned off a whole block of IP addresses, Tange says. That led to 4,500 sites being temporarily wiped out — mostly “family owned businesses or private individuals’ sites,” Tange says.
