You're flowing it wrong: Bad network route between Microsoft, Apple blamed for Azure, O365 MFA outage
Friday, 25 October 2019 22:10

Microsoft says last week's multi-factor authentication (MFA) partial outage , which hit its cloud-based services, was due to a dodgy network route between its servers and Apple's backend.

Amazon is saying nothing about the DDoS attack that took down AWS, but others are
Tuesday, 29 October 2019 06:21

Amazon has still not provided any useful information or insights into the DDoS attack that took down swathes of websites last week, so let’s turn to others that were watching.
