This all depends as we have until the first I believe for XXp weeks, they usually do this a few weeks ahead of a new expansion.

The event actually ended about a hour ago so this does not affect it so I would not expect to see them add time to it.

Once we come back online you will find any GTN sales that you had waiting for you in your mailbox.

With the exploit resolved, we will be conducting a thorough investigation of what has occurred. Once we have completed our review, we'll let you know the status and the actions we have taken.

So what's the exploit that has to be addressed? And why are the GTN sales being ended prematurely? C'mon man, need more info, need.....more......info......

EA isn't liable to cover any lost time on events due to something like this, it is there in the agreement you signed. if EA are kind they could add a day or two, but that depends on them.

hmm, just checking here...

Will there be any rollback too? Reason i ask is: when i logged in about an hour ago, i had made a sale 2 hours ago and accepted the in-game MAIL w/ credits obviously.

I then proceeded to buy a few items (flagship encryptions) from the GTN, of which all those mails were opened and items taken. (as of about 20 min. ago)

No rollback! Basically, we are just going to expire any existing auction, anything that happened prior to that point should be untouched.

This. The service agreement can, from their point of view, be summed up best in one word: "Meh".

(Yes, I know that MMORPG operators do strive to do better than that, but from a legal-recourse point of view, "Meh" is the best we can get.)
