Lost in the Cloud: Akamai DNS Outage, (Thu, Jul 22nd)

As we already got a number of notes from readers: Currently, Akamai’s DNS service appears to experience an outage that affects numerous other large websites. 

This appears to also affect some cloud services. The old rule applies: If in doubt, it is probably a DNS issue. At this point, there is no indication that this is an attack, but we will probably hear more details from Akamai as they resolve the issue.

Currently, the service is recovering. For updates, see https://edgedns.status.akamai.com, Akamai’s Twitter https://twitter.com/akamai, or https://downdetector.com .
