Cloudflare outage knocks popular services offline

A Cloudflare outage has hit several popular services including Discord, Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN, and Feedly. Other popular services that have confirmed they are impacted include Zerodha, Medium.com, news outlet Register, Groww, Buffer, iSpirt, Upstox and Social Blade. The internet infrastructure firm said it is investigating the “wide-spread” issue.

“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.

Updated at 7.14am, June 21: Cloudflare says it has identified the issue and is rolling out a fix. Several businesses are confirming that they are beginning to come online.
