Looks like F-Dev had a bit of a snafu in their 3.3.04 patch for Elite Dangerous that was released yesterday, as they are bringing the servers down for a quick PC emergency patch today.  Apparently, the bug introduced will crash the game when dropping out of hyperspace, whether voluntarily or by interdiction per this post on the Frontier forums:

Unfortunately, if you are playing on Xbox One or PS4, you will have to wait a couple more days, as I am sure the update has to be approved by MS and Sony respectively.  For PC folks, looks like the server will be coming down in the next 15 minutes or so (8:00 AM EST), and then should be right back up so you can continue to mine, hunt or run goods.
