Baidu unavailable for 5 hours and counting

Baidu, China’s equivalent to Google, has been unavailable since 09:50 this morning, Central European Time. That is more than five hours and counting as of this writing.

The problem might be related to the so-called Great Firewall of China, since it seems like the website is accessible from within China (we performed a test with a proxy server located within China). However, none of the Pingdom test servers in Europe or North America are able to access the site.

UPDATE: At 18:16 became accessible again, after having been unavailable more than eight hours.

China firewall is lame, use water to put out the fire of the wall but how do you get over the wall? – use to bypass it. You can bypass China Great Firewall and access youtube, facebook, blogger and all other sites which are blocked.
