Pando Media Booster, a third party service that hosts Turbine Interactive's downloads and updates ( http://www.pandomediabooster.com/) reputedly went offline yesterday. Though there is no PR on the closure, their Wikipedia page still states that they are out of business as of 8-31-2013 and have shut down all their servers.
Meanwhile players of games that use the service have flooded Steam and DDO.com (currently down) forums with complaints.
Turbine responded to initial customer reports of the issue and the cause within 6 hours and have taken their entire network (including their forums that were flooded with complaints) offline while the try to figure out a way to resolve the issue."
