Cloudflare, a company in charge of offering CDN, VPN and other services, has suffered several DDoS attacks.
If in the last few hours the 500 Internal Server Error message has appeared on some websites or you haven’t been able to access services like Discord, don’t worry: there’s no problem with your internet connection, it’s all due to a general outage from Cloudflare, a company in charge of offering CDN, VPN and other services to many websites.
Cloudflare has received several DDoS attacksThis company connects web pages with our computers and devices in a more optimal way through a network, but recently it is dealing with several DDoS attacks that seek to saturate its servers to cause failures like the one we are telling you about right now.
This is generating a multitude of errors in highly visited Google portals, but also in video games. For example, there are problems in games from Riot Games, with users reporting difficulties connecting correctly to the League of Legends or Valorant services.
If what interests you is Discord, at the time of writing these lines the company assures that it has solved the problems related to its connection, although if it is currently depending on Cloudflare it is possible that they will appear again at some point if the DDoS attacks continue towards the company.
Services are returning to normalWithout going any further, yesterday Cloudflare managed to stop an avalanche of more than 212 million HTTPS requests in less than 30 seconds through a botnet of 5,000 devices, originating through 120 countries, with Indonesia, the United States United States, Russia and Brazil as the most prominent.
Other popular services such as Omegle, DoorDash, Crunchyroll, NordVPN or Feedly have registered drops in the last hours. Cloudflare has assured about seven in the morning that they are working on solving it, already observing positive results in some of the affected websites.
For our part, we will continue to be attentive to the problems that may arise in the coming hours. At 3DJuegos we will inform you about any news that may affect the connection and access to various video games or important services when interacting with them.
