Seems the site is down. I wonder if this is a virus attack?

I tried this "Download Zenmate on chrome works great now and its free" and it works.

It seems to be down in lots of countries not just UK so maybe it is a DDOS attack.

Reference to Zenmate, there are a few interesting reviews which might be helpful?.

I have just posted a link regarding some useful information, but PCA seems to think that it was spam?.

Amazon, Autotrader and LinkedIn were also affected by this problem. Ebay has suffered 10 outages this year, of which this was the worst.

BT servers may have been involved, although it's not certain. BT has had network problems with the recent last gasp from hurricane Bertha affecting our weather.

One of the Ebay outages (In February) was due to an attack by the Syrian electronic army.

This might throw some light on the matter: The internet is dying?
