Fastly Internet Outage Exposes Vulnerability of Major Websites
Updated on

Websites across the internet were temporarily unavailable on Tuesday, including the New York Times, Bloomberg News, Reddit Inc., and the U.K. government, after services from content-delivery network Fastly Inc. went down.

Fastly, which helps push data quickly around the internet, said that it had fixed the issue that caused a global outage of its services just before noon London time, about an hour after it first disclosed the problem. The websites that had been down earlier in the day appeared to be restored.
