An attacker was running scripts against a couple of our endpoints which we hadn't sufficiently limited, allowing him to flood them with web requests. This tied up resources making them unavailable for normal page views. The mischief prevented most normal users from getting through to the marketplace until we identified and blocked the source.
We've patched the endpoints appropriately, preventing this sort of attack from impacting normal users in the future.
We apologize for the inconvenience!

The marketplace is now operational. We resolved the issue after discovering some suspicious external activity.
