    It's odd. Why did Slack, Github, Peloton, and other services all go down around the same time?

    🤔 If I was a betting man, I would be scanning everything for Russian malware and backdoors.

    I'm sure there's going to be a larger wide-impacting attack later this week or over the weekend.

    Both Github (even though it's Microsoft now) and Slack are hosted on Amazon's servers.

    So it's more likely that AWS just temporarily messed up.

    @bittersweet although I agree, when AWS goes down, it's usually bigger news.

    @sariel Not necessarily if it's a partial failure. Could just be a few regions 🤷

    @bittersweet Amazon has service interruptions daily. Most go unnoticed because there's multiple DCs in an AZ.

    It would have been in the news if multiple DCs went cold.

    Chances are more likely GitHub fucked up and all these companies bricked out in the midst of deployments.

    If this was the case, the question still remains. Why did it happen?

    OK fine, it was Putin.

    He does seem like the kind of guy who force-deploys without waiting for tests to finish.
