I noticed around 11 pm last night that I could not access fidelity.com.

That was strange since I access fidelity 30 – 40 times a day! I tried intermittently till 1 am and found that it was still down. That seemed very strange and unusual. I very rarely see fidelity down.

I tried to access them this morning. They were still down.

I called them up (and the phone number is 1-800-FIDELITY).

I was told the most amazing story.

It is a DNS ‘corruption’ BUT they won’t admit that they obviously have been attacked and attacked bad.

They want ME to contact my ISP and ask for a DNS refresh. Yes, I am on hold with TDS as I type. This is amazing.

This is NOT good.

So this is a heads up.

I will keep you posted.
