Craigslist website down with Digital Gangster hack claim

By Alan Ng - Nov 24, 2014

It looks like there are some big problems with Craigslist at the moment. We are trying to access the website at the moment but haven’t been able to, with Craigslist down today in US and the login service not working.

It’s not an ideal time obviously, during one of the biggest shopping periods of the year. Unfortunately we are also hearing rumors about Craigslist being hacked, but we’re yet to confirm that as true.

Having said that, there are wide reports on social media, that just before the outage occurred, was redirecting to ‘Digital Gangster for life’ which seems to back up the reports about a hack.


We just know that there are big problems with the Craigslist log in for us at the moment. As we try to investigate and seek an official status update on the matter, let us know what is happening in your area.

Is Craigslist not working today in US for you as well, or are you now able to access the website without issue?

  • kade6767

    They’re not digital gangsters, they’re technological idiots.

    • CCNA

      whoever did this is no idiot. it takes skill to take down a site like craigslist.

      • kade6767

        You don’t know much about hacking. It doesn’t take too much to take a site like Craigslist. But saying, “technological idiot” is not referring to their capabilities and skills, it is merely stating that you’re a moron for hacking a site like Craigslist. I mean, go hack a site worth hacking and not a classified page. Stupid.

  • kade6767

    Wow, they must be so proud of themselves. I mean how big of a moron do you have to be to think it’s funny to hack Craigslist? Too bad stupid fucks like that hide behind computers because they need their asses kicked.

  • Barbara

    It’s also down here in Israel.

  • Shawn

    For all that are still having CL access issues due to lame ISP’s that won’t manually flush their DNS records. You can change your DNS to use google’s at and you can access the site. You probably should change back after a while to your DHCP provided DNS server.

  • sally

    i’m in Lynnwood Washington, thats close to Seattle Washington , and the words “digital gangster for life” showed up in my firefox browser.

  • William Baker

    Its down everywhere but unlike most im not getting sent to the gangster website just getting a message saying the internet website has expired lol

  • ted

    At approximately 5pm PST Sunday evening the craigslist domain name service (DNS) records maintained at one of our domain registrars were compromised, diverting users to various non-craigslist sites.

    This issue has been corrected at the source, but many internet service providers (ISPs) cached the false DNS information for several hours, and some may still have incorrect information.

    If you are unable to reach the craigslist site, please ask your network provider or tech staff to flush all * and * entries (A,CNAME,SOA) from their DNS servers.

    Arkansas and Missouri are both down

  • birds movie 2

    oh daw, now I remember. the entire internet went down last year at this time right before black Friday. history repeating itself don’t worry, be happy….lol

  • birds movie 2

    yep, mines been down for a while. I did see something in the search bar that blinked digital gangster real quick then this page cannot be displayed A store owner is probably responsible. Anyways, I typed ‘craigslist korea…..they are down as well. Some people have too much time on their hands to hacking in 2014 still. GET A LIFE DIGITAL GANGSTER. I use Craigslist as a calming drug and you blinked it off my screeeeeen. This will be karma coming back to you. Have a nice day prick. 🙁
