Hacker: Attack on Guardian, CNN, New York Times and other media sites

A contemporary large-scale down – most likely caused by the “crash” of a large-scale content delivery server (CDN) hit many government sites – including the British government – newspaper sites such as New York Times, Financial Times , Spectator and Guardian and television networks such as CNN Spectator. Reports come in from different parts of the world, with error messages stuck on the white pages of popular media sites, too. The Guardian page, for example, currently returns the only phrase “Connection failure”, those of the New York Times and the Financial Times “Fastly error: unknown domain: nyt.com”, that of the British government “Error 503 Service Unavailable “and so on.

This is not a hacker attack, but it is a glitch that has plagued the Fastly CDN.
