Many users stated that big websites and services such as Discord, Crunchyroll, and Medium were unavailable, while Malaysians noted that local sites and services such as Foodpanda and Malay Mail were also unavailable. SoyaCincau reported that their office was still able to connect to the internet, but only through hotspots on specific cell networks.
At 2.43 p.m. Malaysian time, Cloudflare confirmed the problem, and at 2.57 p.m, they have identified the issue . At around 2.34 p.m., Cloudflare announced a catastrophic incident, which wiped out connection in Cloudflare’s network across numerous locations.
