What's going on Yahoo! (Nasdaq: YHOO)?  

Recently, Yahoo! Finance has been unresponsive or down multiple times a day. A few inhouse Fools have noticed too, so it's not me and my numerous clicks. Anyone else noticing Yahoo! Finance going down? What's going on here?

Haven't noticed it being down at all, and I use it quite a lot.

Maybe they're upgrading? :)

I was assuming that their servers were being overloaded with Michael Jackson hits.  My guess is that today it will be better.

Unclear if this is related, but the Washington Post reports (may need to register):

South Korea's intelligence agency suspects that North Korea may have been behind an Internet attack that on Tuesday and Wednesday targeted government Web sites in South Korea and the United States, lawmakers in Seoul told Yonhap news service....  

In addition to sites run by government agencies, several commercial Web sites were attacked, including those operated by Nasdaq, the New York Stock Exchange and The Washington Post.

It's possible that Yahoo (along with NYSE.com and Nasdaq.com) got caught in this cyberattack.

Hopefully Team America is on top of the situation.

I left finance.yahoo for finance.google quite some time ago and haven't looked back.  Google's charts are freakin' awesome.  For those that might still be having problems...

I was never all that impressed with Yahoo finance.

I give credence to the cyber attack theory.  I also had trouble with: CNN, mail.google.com, wtop.com, and now cannot remote into work now.  I thought it was my carrier (Verizon FiOS) or something local to me.  But you guys are experiencing it too.

#9, I like Google's charts too, but Verizon has better indicator support.  SMA, Bollinger Bands, RSI, etc.  Even better are stockwatch and stockcharts, but they're less interactive.  You end up wearing out your key.

FWIW, responsiveness on Yahoo! Finance seems to be better now.  My faith in humanity has been restored... for now.

It's Yahoo mail that has often been unresponsive during the last couple of weeks. Anyway, Yahoo just sucks. They did MSFT a great service by refusing to let them buy this piece of junk.
