It seems like the internet is suffering massive outage.

As of now these sites are down from where I live.
UK Government Site
CNN
Amazon (was temporarily down)
GitHub (was temporarily down)
Stackoverflow (was temporarily down)
Financial Times
Independent

I wonder who caused the massive outage?
I heard that the Fastly servers (CDN?) caused it or something. Not 100% sure.

Sorry, I accidently posted in the wrong thread.

I haven't noticed the web sites being down, what is the cause you say?? Oh, just checked the URL you posted! Hmmm... things did seem a bit slow yesterday or so.

Hey, but they couldn't take the illustrious HPC:Factor down, thank God!

I just read a news article on the Web about it shortly before visiting HPC:Factor today, which also cited the Fastly crash. I wasn't even aware of it until I read the article. Guess it was too early in the day for me to notice.

Yep, the time difference, I guess.

The twitter was all about internet being down. Good thing it didn't last very long.
It's interesting to note that Fastly stock went up about 10.85%.

The only one I notices was that Amazon wasn't loading images or javascript code. So search wasn't working. Which is odd... considering you'd assume that Amazon was using AWS...

I heard some people saying AWS had some problems too, but not to sure if that was true or not.
