Numerous websites are now back online after a widespread outage that made them temporarily unavailable Tuesday morning.
Dozens of high-traffic websites, including The New York Times, CNN, HBO Max and the UK government’s home page, were unavailable Tuesday morning after a widespread outage hit cloud service company fastly.
Reddit had received more than 20,000 reports of issues about the outage, including slow loading on both the app and the website.
A Fastly spokesman later acknowledged the problem, calling it a “service configuration” issue and said it was working on a fix.
“We identified a service configuration that triggered disruptions across our POPs globally and have disabled that configuration,” the company said in a statement. “Our global network is coming back online. This was a technical issue triggered by a service configuration, and is not related to a cyber attack.”
The issue was resolved at 4 a.m. PDT Tuesday.
