PSA: Garmin's completely dark, no Connect no nothing

The official company line is:

We are currently experiencing an outage that affects Garmin.com and Garmin Connect. This outage also affects our call centers, and we are currently unable to receive any calls, emails or online chats. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and apologize for this inconvenience.
Unofficially...according to employees on Twitter...everything has been taken down to sanitize due to encrypting ransomware.


TL;DR, if you rely on Garmin or Connect for ride aggregation/databasing...manually sync your ride for a few days.

Yup. Word on the street/internet is they have been taken down by ransomware. Been down for the past 24hrs I think.

Yikes, the corporate offices are only a few miles away from my house. Glad I don't work on their IT department right now! This article says https://www.androidcentral.com/garmi...ti-hour-outage outages expected for the rest of the week possibly.

I got a message that after a 4 hour system restart it will be up at 1400 hours today...….but if its a full infection of the system I doubt this will happen. Bummer for Garmin.....hope they resolve it very soon!
