Cloudflare a web-infrastructure and website-security company, providing content-delivery-network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security, and distributed domain-name-server services to many major companies and services. Today, Cloudflare went down, taking with it Discord, Patreon, Medium, Riot Games, and more for a short period of time.
It appears now that all services are back up and running, including Spectrum, Shopify, 4chan, and Crunchyroll.
By a twist of irony, it appears the DDoS mitigation service was actually hit with a DDoS attack. A representative for Cloudflare reached out: “It appears a router on our global backbone announced bad routes and caused some portions of the network to not be available. We believe we have addressed the root cause and monitoring systems for stability now.”
Now that everything’s back up, you can join Your EDM’s Discord here.
