Bioware took down the servers yesterday for an emergency hotfix involving an exploit with the Galactic Command sytem.
Apologies for the last minute notice, but we will be bringing the servers down at 1:45 PST (2145 GMT) for a brief update. I will post as soon as the servers are available, but we don’t expect the downtime to last more than an hour.

We brought the servers down to address an issue involving setting the stack size in the “Disintegration” pop up higher than the amount you had available.
As of this downtime, this issue has been fully resolved. For those who are wondering, we do consider having taken advantage of this bug an exploit. After a detailed review, we will take appropriate actions as needed.

As there seems to be some confusion, let me clarify.
If you simply Disintegrated the whole stack you had without using a high number than you had available, you did not encounter the bug, and therefore did not exploit.
Sorry for any confusion!
