What is going on with Garmin Connect?

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

What is going on with Garmin Connect?

When I tried to upload data at about 8 am, I got a message saying they were off-line. Same message at 6 30. So, I can't send my ride data to Strava. Anyone know what's going on?

Not sure what you mean. Is the site down or am I being extorted?

Probably Garmin is being extorted. It’s not you. Site down “for maintenance” is the official reason they say.

Yes, it's a them thing. Expect the site to be down indefinitely. It appears either their systems are completely integrated everywhere or they are paralyzed with fear, as their manufacturing is down as well.

Yes, DCRainMaker has a guide on how to get the files off:

I'm too lazy to worry, at least for now. We'll see how long it goes.

It's very easy. Plug your Garmin device into your laptop/pc and go to Garmin/Activities folder. Latest will be today's date for example and a .fit file. Save to desktop. Go to Strava, Upload new Activity, browse for the .fit file and upload it. Job done.

The only way to stop any kind of malware, human or digital: is to shut everything down, isolate every system, and sanitize it system by system. Takes time.

Maybe by Monday things will be back to (ab)normal.

Kind of weird to see a mostly empty Strava feed . . .

Is MFA that hard to implement? If it's enabled across the board even elevation of privileges attacks can't do much. I believe I heard at RSA that it takes between 4 and 6 months for a company to realize they've been compromised.

Hacked. My hope is that Garmin encrypted the data at rest, although I am not counting on it. Here's hoping the backups are a) encrypted and b) not hit by the ransomware too.

Yep. I've never used Garmin Connect or any other Garmin software other than Garmin Express. I don't even put anything in the storage on my Edge, I have my maps, routes, and data on on the micro card. Never had a problem with the device or with Garmin. I wish I could store all my TP and Strava data on my desktop as well as blindly uploading it.

Didn't think about that..... yeah, all my data from the first ride I did with my Edge 500 circa 2010 is safely stored on my computer with appropriate backups. I never wanted to trust Garmin, Strava, RWGPS or others to have to give it back when I might want it.

If I don't pay 150 bitcoins, they will publicly post how slow I am climbing hills.

That's when you claim you were hacked and they changed your numbers.

Garmin used to have a windows program that you could load all your rides into, also had mapping and could display your routes.

Good info on what happened here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...omware-attack/
