They couldn’t bring us down with Coronavirus, Murder Hornets, Looting or rioting, but it looks like phase two in operation scare the shit out of everyone may be about to start!
It appears that the country could be experiencing a largescale attack on our infrastructure. Currently, the major wireless carriers in the United States are suffering widespread outages.
Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint users all reported issues from coast-to-coast.
T-Mobile’s Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said the company was aware of an issue and they were working to resolve it.
“Our engineers are working to resolve a voice and data issue that has been affecting customers around the country,” Ray tweeted. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have this fixed shortly.”
Sprint, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon began showing outages about an hour after T-Mobile, according to Down Detector.
Largescale DDOS Attack?
According to a number of cybersecurity experts, it appears to be a large-scale DDoS attack. For hours our network has been having issues and so far Instagram, Facebook, T-Mobile, Verizon, Twitch and a number of companies and servers appear to have been affected.
Matthew Prince, CEO of Cloudflare denies that the country suffered a DDOS attack, claiming the issue was caused by T-Mobile. He failed to explain why other networks were reporting outages or how issues at T-Mobile could have caused those problems.
Verizon claims its network is only having problems because its users are trying to connect to T-Mobile users.
“Verizon’s network is performing well. We’re aware that another carrier is having network issues. Calls to and from that carrier may receive an error message,” a Verizon spokesperson said. “We understand Downdetector is falsely reporting Verizon network issues.
Downdetector, a popular website for tracking outages and issues, is currently showing a number of major outages across telecoms operators and popular websites.
