Discord, as you may already know, is a popular chat service. The company has faced issues due to network problems at Cloudflare and a wider internet problem caused by Verizon. The app was not available to thousands of users. Not just that but even the website and status pages of Discord were having a lot of problems. This caused a major loss of traffic for the company. Discord’s problem could be traced at Cloudflare which is a content delivery network. It was at 7:43 am ET when Cloudflare starting facing issues. This caused problems to Discord, Crunchyroll and many other sites that were dependent on its services.

Cloudflare stated that they were working on a possible route leak, affecting some of its networks. However, services like Discord were not accessible for more than an hour. Discord stated:

“Discord is affected by the general internet outrage.”

Cloudflare’s CEO, Matthew Prince tweeted on his Twitter account about the issue. According to his post:

 “The teams at Verizon and Noction should be incredibly embarrassed at their failings this morning which impacted Cloudflare and other large chunks of the Internet.”

It can be said that due to the network problems faced by Verizon, it caused a great problem to a lot of other sites.

Cloudflare explained the matter in an additional statement, stating that:

 “Earlier today, a widespread BGP routing leak affected a number of internet services and a portion of traffic to Cloudflare. All of Cloudflare’s systems continued to run normally, but traffic wasn’t getting to us for a portion of our domains. At this point, the network outage has been fixed and traffic levels are returning to normal.”

A Cloudflare spokesperson stated that:

“This leak affects many internet services, including Cloudflare.”

They are, however, still working with the network provider that caused this route leak.

“Cloudflare does not name the affected network, but Verizon also has widespread problems on the East Coast this morning. Cloudflare also noted that:

 “The network responsible for the route leak has now fixed the problem.”

The services are soon going to get back to normal via the general route
