Cloudflare outage knocks popular websites offline

Many popular Bangladeshi sites, including The Business Post, have also been also affected.

A Cloudflare outage has hit several popular services including Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN, Valorant, Genshin Impact, Twitter, and Canva.

Many popular Bangladeshi sites, including The Business Post, have also been also affected.

The internet infrastructure firm said it is investigating the “wide-spread” issue, reports TechCrunch.

“Users may experience errors or timeouts reaching Cloudflare’s network or services,” said the firm, which suffered an outage in some parts of the world last week as well. John Graham-Cumming, CTO of Cloudflare, said on a Hacker News thread that it’s not a worldwide outage, but “a lot of places” are impacted.

“Problem with our backbone. We know what. Rollbacks etc. happening,” he said.

Users have indicated that Coinbase, Shopify, and League of Legends are also facing issues, according to DownDetector, a crowdsourced web monitoring tool that tracks outages. Cloudflare says it has identified the issue and is rolling out a fix. Several businesses are confirming that they are beginning to come online.
