Pinterest, Amazon, The New York Times, Reddit, Wired, Business Insider, CNN and more – all of these websites are down and unavailable in many parts of the United States. East side of the country seems to be particulary hard struck by the issue. What is the problem? News’ title says it all. Many large US websites are down ever since today’s morning. A number of errors pop up when an attempt to enter the site is made.
Problem seems to be connected to Fastly, a cloud hosting service service that supports the backends of all the affected websites. According to Fastly’s spokesperson, service is dealing with a ”global event”, nature of which it could or would not clarify.
Is it a hacker attack, similiar or even connected to the Petya ransomware that has just attacked Europe? Or is it ”just” a technical issue that will be dealt with shortly? We will see.
