Many sites including Twitter, Shopify and Spotify suffering outage

Many sites including Twitter, Shopify and Spotify suffering outage
A number of popular sites and services are down right now for many users, including Twitter, SoundCloud, Spotify and Shopify. 
The cause appears to be a sweeping outage of DNS provider Dyn, as a result of a DDOS attack, according to a post on Hacker News. We’re tracking the outage and will let you know if we discover anything further about outage length, cause or sites affected. 
Other sites experiencing issues include Box, Boston Globe, New York Times, Github, Airbnb, Reddit, Freshbooks, Heroku and Vox Media properties. 
Users accessing these sites might have more or less success depending on where they’re located, as some European and Asian users seem not to be encountering these issues. Dyn says that the DDOS attack affecting its customers is mostly impacting the U.S. East coast, and specifically Managed DNS customers. 
Engineers are working on “mitigating” the issue, according the DNS provider. As of around 9:15 AM ET some of the affected services appear to be improving in reliability. We’ll continue to monitor for updates.

It's BARELY working right now.


Sites across the internet had problems on Friday morning following a cyberattack on a major internet management company. 
Dyn announced on Friday morning that it has been the subject of a cyberattack that then caused major problems for numerous websites. 
People have reported issues with Twitter, Spotify, SoundCloud, Vox Media sites, Airbnb and numerous other sites. 
The attack was resolved as of 9:20 a.m. EST, Dyn said. Writing on its website, Dyn said that starting at about 7:00 a.m. EST, the company "began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. 
Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time. Updates will be posted as information becomes available." DDoS stands for "distributed denial of service" and is a common tactic used by hackers to take down internet-connected servers. 
In a DDoS attack, malicious users build a network of computers that then send massive amounts of traffic to particular servers with the goal of denying the use of those servers to other users, according to Cisco. The attack is mainly affecting the eastern United States, Dyn said.

WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — According to a rather revealing white paper obtained by Intellihub.com, the Clinton Foundation recruited the Benenson Strategy Group to prepare a “salvage program” for Hillary’s current and failing presidential campaign.Non-recommended salvage options
Outlandishly, yet to no surprise, the report even concludes that a “Red Dawn” scenario would not work and that using U.N. troops to infiltrate across the border would only ‘harden support for Trump.’
Then, “Cobalt Rain” was the next non-recommended option. “The public has been primed for radiological attack and stockpiles have been positioned but while the psychological impact of a Co-60 weapon is severe, the threshold of opportunity may have passed for this to stop a vote,” the paper reads.
Widespread riots, HAARP and even the activation of a more deadly strain of the Zika virus were also factored into the equation and but shot down as Trump supporters are even “willing to risk lethal pathogens to vote.” Which leaves us with one final option, recommended by the group.

For more than two hours on Friday morning, much of the web seemed to grind to a halt—or at least slow to dial-up speed—for many users in the United States. […] Someone attacked the architecture that held them together—the domain-name system, or DNS, the technical network that redirects users from easy-to-remember addresses like theatlantic.com to a company’s actual web servers. The assault took the form of a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS) on one of the major companies that provides other companies access to DNS. […]


Look back on the prior page at how you can change your DNS server to OpenDNS. Not saying that OpenDNS’s servers can’t be affected, but I was able to get through to twitter using OpenDNS but could not using whatever DNS servers Comcast uses.
