As reported earlier Facebook and all it’s related login services which include Instagram went down for about 40mins earlier today, we reported (along with most of the world) that Lizard Squad had taken responsibility. Well it appears they had nothing to do with it. Facebook confessed and said that they added some new updates which in turn didn’t go so well and resulted in the crash, they then rolled back the update and that’s when everything came back up. I hope you’ll forgive me with this error.
Some news services think that the following image, which depicts live attacks as they happen (source: norsecorp.com) contradicts the comments from Facebook and that an attack actually did happen. Though i’m not too sure where the bulk of Facebook servers reside but i would of thought it was on the West Coast (eg Silicon Valley) and not the midwest (hopefully that’s right) anyway you decide who to believe.
