Dropbox experienced an outage. It was down for much of the weekend. What happened?

Today, things are okay, but it wasn’t a an attack of any sort. According to Dropbox it was just a routine server upgrade gone awry thanks to a bug that was installed on several servers. It brought down the entire service, according to Dropbox’s website. Everything is safe, and it assures us all that “no hacking or DDOS attack was involved.”
