Document previewing unavailable due to DDoS

Today, Friday October 21, Canvas experienced the ripples of the DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks that effected major DNS providers. Canvas itself was not effected, but Crocodoc and Box Document viewers are both currently unavailable due to the attack. This will be presented as the Unicycling Panda load screen with no document loading. As soon as Crocodoc and Box have a chance to recover, these documents should render and be viewable within Canvas once again. We thank you for your patience during this and will provide updates as they become available.
