There appears to be a lot of activity on the Digital Attack Map.

Cloudflare released a statement moments ago – via Data Center Dynamics.

The full cause of the outage is unknown, with Cloudflare’s support page simply noting: “Cloudflare is observing network performance issues. Customers may be experiencing 502 errors while accessing sites on Cloudflare.

“We are working to mitigate impact to Internet users in this region.”

CEO Matthew Prince tweeted: “Aware of major Cloudflare issues impacting us network wide. Team is working on getting to the bottom of what’s going on. Will continue to update.”

Update, 14:15 UTC: “Cloudflare has implemented a fix for this issue and is currently monitoring the results.

“We will update the status once the issue is resolved.”
