The hacktivist group Anonymous Sudan claimed responsibility for the massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that took down the website of Cloudflare.
Cloudflare confirmed that a DDoS attack took down its website for a few minutes and ponited out that it did not impact other products or services.
“To be clear, there was no Cloudflare breach. Cloudflare experienced a DDoS attack that caused intermittent connectivity issues to http://www.cloudflare.com for a few minutes. This DDoS attack did not affect any service or product capability that Cloudflare provides, and no customers were impacted by this incident. Cloudflare’s website is deliberately hosted on separate infrastructure and cannot impact Cloudflare services. To be clear, our website is fully functional and up and running.” reads a statement issued by the company to the media.
