Massive DDoS Attack Causing Major Problems On The East Coast

If you are on the east coast and having trouble reaching major websites like Twitter, Spotify, Imgur, Pinterest, Wired and so on, you're not alone. The good news is that DNS provider Dyn is aware of the problem and actively trying to fix it.

This attack is mainly impacting US East and is impacting Managed DNS customers in this region. Our Engineers are continuing to work on mitigating this issue. Starting at 11:10 UTC on October 21th-Friday 2016 we began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time. Updates will be posted as information becomes available.
