I think there are a lot of attacks going on today. Might have something to do with the Russia/Ukraine conflict. I was getting 500 errors from a lot of websites I visited this morning, including Linux.org, crunchyroll and several others.
Everything seems to be OK ATM. Websites seem to be responding normally now.
It's a Cloudflare issue this time.

Or more specifically, continued anxiety and economic failure: maybe there are more desperate attempts to unsuccessfully hack websites for money and user data.

I like to think this demonstrates why it's bad for one service provider to dominate the market, but nobody will learn all that much from this.

CF dominates the market - and their free tier is delightful. Oddly, a paid plan jumps up a bunch from zero, but that's not all that important. The important bit is that CF dominates the market with 82% of the CDN market - though that's only like 20% of the web.

But, it's a 'big 20%' meaning that 20% is made up of some pretty major companies.

With recent changes in the way Google handles ranking, you'll see more sites moving to a CDN and they're predominantly going to pick CF, if the past is any indication.

Thought I'd just report I got an error 500 this morning. CF said only the server was down. Nothing related to a (D)DoS attack, but not worth starting a thread just to report it about 10 AM (GMT +2).

I have had 4 drop-outs this morning, not spotted any excessive load around the 400 mark, perhaps cloud fair are still having problems
