Facebook and Instagram outage

A few hours ago, we exclusively reported about social media giants Facebook and Instagram logging users out and displaying server maintenance issue yet it is unclear if Netflix’s outage is related or not and whether it is a technical glitch or a cyber attack.

Remember, in October 2016, a world-renowned Domain Name Servers (DNS) service provider suffered a series of massive DDoS attacks which forced its servers to go offline. As a result, popular websites including Netflix, Facebook, Amazon, PayPal, Twitter and Reddit also suffered a day-long outage.

At the time of publishing this article, Netflix website was down. Expect an update soon.
