Amazon Web Services began experiencing widespread outages on Tuesday.

This affected thousands of users.

From Fox Bussiness:

Amazon Web Services experienced a widespread outage on Tuesday, impacting thousands of users on different websites and streaming platforms.

AWS provides cloud computing services to many governments, universities and companies. The outage impacted Amazon’s ability to give regular updates while it addressed the problem.

“We are seeing the impact to multiple AWS APIs in the US-EAST-1 Region,” a notice on Amazon Web Services’ status webpage reads. “This issue is also affecting some of our monitoring and incident response tooling, which is delaying our ability to provide updates.”

The notice later said the root cause had been identified and Amazon was “actively working towards recovery.”

“We have identified [the] root cause of the issue causing service API and console issues in the US-EAST-1 Region and are starting to see some signs of recovery. We do not have an ETA for full recovery at this time.”

Now, we have this.

According to Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec, rumors are now surfacing that the outage was from a Cyber Attack.

Major US institutions use Amazon Web Services.

If Amazon was hit by a cyber attack the damage could be bad.
