Service Interruption: Drupal Sites Outage
Date and Time
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - 16:00 to 16:20
A database name with a special character ($SITES) caused the error to show up on all Drupal seven sites that do not suppress notice errors.
While these sites were still operational, the error message was prominent on every webpage. All sites should be back to normal operation as of 4:20 pm.
