Big Tech Giant Facebook down worldwide

October 4, 2021 the Facebook, Whats-app and Instagram platforms are down worldwide. The Daily Brief could not ascertain the issue affecting the service, but according to the error messages received suggest it “may” be a problem with the Domain Name System (DNS).

They resorted to Tweeting to express their apology saying, “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing our apps and products.” They said, ”We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience.” They expressed the same response for Whats-app and Instagram.

Is this occurring because of the Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen who was a project Manager for Facebook who was critical in the “Facebook Files series”, or are there other reasons for this outage. This occurred a day after Haugen accused the firm of making profit their priority instead of dealing with hate speech and misinformation. Haugen said her lawyers have filed a minimum of eight complaints with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Security experts tracking the situation said the outage could have been triggered by a configuration error, which could be the result of an internal mistake, though sabotage by an insider is possible.

An outside hack was viewed as less likely. A massive denial-of-service attack that could overwhelm one of the world’s most popular sites, on the other hand, would require either coordination among powerful criminal groups or a very innovative technique.
Facebook acknowledged users were having trouble accessing its apps but did not provide any specifics about the nature of the problem or how many were affected by the outage.

“We’re working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” Facebook said.
