If you were like me and thousands of other Australians last night, you would have patiently filled out your Census form only to be informed your ‘request could not be processed’.
How could this happen? I didn’t even mark myself as a widowed Jedi with 11 children!
The Australian Bureau of Statistics has now come out to say the Census website was pulled after numerous multiple attacks were launched by foreign hackers.
Chief statistician David Kalisch described the claimed attack as "malicious" to ABC radio on Wednesday morning.
"It was an attack, and we believe from overseas ... It was quite clear it was malicious," he said.
The true source behind the meltdown is yet to be identified, but that hasn't stopped every man and his dog having a guess at the true villain. Here are some of the weirdest theories to emerge.
The 'gorillas in silk suits' theory
This theory was submitted by a Reddit user who claims to have worked in the public service sector for 12 years.
"I suspect that there is a dedicated IT crew out there, currently doing shots of tequila and wondering what to spend their redundancy pay out on.
"Because they would have spent the last three or four years talking to gorillas in silk suits about how they needed x capacity and x amount of money to provide this capacity in order to make the Census work.
