    Wish I would have read this before I tore through my network trying to figure out why browsing the internet is so hit and miss. Even their DNS services (which I use) are borked at the moment.

    Does this explain why LeakedReality is down or is it because of the pics and vids of Hunter Biden? Thankgod I saved those hotel pics/vids.

    seems excessive when a couple of commands could have provided a result.

    Having worked for one of the affected companies, had warned them years ago, never drop their own servers and infrastructure for cloud hosting.
    Today they just lost several millions.

    I am against the "cloud" when comes to businesses making money from their software services. A third party owns your data which can be shared with competitors, you rely to provide their services and not cut you off destroying your business.

    But the IT sector is full of late millennials and GenZ who cannot understand wtf is happening around them. They are gullible lobotomized sheep believing the marketing of the latest services are better always, not thinking wth will happen if something goes wrong. Those are the people who will be lost, possibly suicide, the morning there won't be any phone/internet or electricity, because they haven't lived without them.

    That from someone with 30 years career as dev and analyst.

    A massive web network Cloudflare has suffered a DDOS attack, knocking dozens of sites offline.

    Cloudflare is very used to providing its clients with DDoS protection, but over the last few months, Cloudflare has found itself a target of a few DDoS attacks. On the 27th of April 2022, Cloudflare managed to mitigate a 15M requests per second HTTPS DDoS attack. However, the attack was not successful.

    Today, however (21st of June 2022) somebody managed to launch a DDoS attack against Cloudflare, knocking out dozens of company websites that relied on its network and hosting services. We don’t yet know who launched the attack, but we estimate it may be the attackers that failed to take down Cloudflare just over a month ago...

    What does this mean for a normal person that has no idea what anything you wrote means.

    Any DNS service is better than the ISP one , i generally use cloudflare as primary and google as secondary

    He's obviously a crackpot qanon trumper spouting stupid conspiracies. No reason to bring up stupid political crap except in his own paranoid mind where he thinks people are after him for posting on youtube, lol.

    Too many sites use Cloudflare and AWS. Too many sites rely in these two companies.
