Massive Cyber-Attack Cripples Multiple Websites Including Twitter, Paypal and Reddit

A widespread cyber-attack was carried out against some of the world’s biggest websites on Friday, with users unable to access Twitter, SoundCloud, Spotify and many others for over two hours.
Major DNS host Dyn says access to websites was restored following a DDoS attack early Friday, stating that “services have been restored to normal as of 13:20 UTC,” following hours of outages online.

According to Hacker News, a “Massive Dyn DNS outrage” caused Twitter, Etsy, Github, SoundCloud and Spotify to go down.

No-one has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Other sites reportedly affected included Airbnb, Reddit and Vox Media. Users said they had a variety of issues, depending on their location, Tech Crunch reports.
