today at 13:57 UTC all servers managed by Scalr in AWS was turned off. This is devastating for our clients.
We are investigating causes, and trying to restore the lost instances, and databases.

There's 2 kind of logs in Scalr related with this catastrophe:
1 - Message: Unable to read LoadAverage value from server #1: Wrong crypto key!
2 - Message: Server d423fd2e-53dd-4ef4-a889-18d2a0bc26e8 (ec2) found in Scalr but not found in the cloud. Terminating.

All instances was terminated at the same time, with the same log.

Please, can you give us some ideas to figure out what triggered this issue?
