Popular chat service Discord is experiencing problems today due to network problems at Cloudflare and a wider internet problem. The app is currently inaccessible to its millions of users, and also Discord's website and status pages are struggling. Discord's problem can be traced to an interruption at Cloudflare, a content delivery network. Cloudflare began experiencing problems at 7:43 ET, and this has caused Discord, Feedly, Crunchyroll and many other sites that rely on their services to have partial interruptions.
Cloudflare says it works with a "possible route leakage" that affects some of its network, but services like Discord have been inaccessible for nearly 45 minutes now. "Discord is affected by the general internet crime," says a Discord statement on the company's status website. "Hang on. Animals your cats."
"This leak affects many internet services, including Cloudflare," says a Cloudflare spokesman. "We continue to work with the network provider who created this route leak to remove it." Cloudflare is not called the current network, but Verizon is also experiencing widespread problems in the East Coast of the United States this morning. Cloudflare notes that the "route leakage network has now solved the problem", so services should soon return to normal.
Update, June 24, 8:45 ET : Article updated with more information from Cloudflare about the general road leakage.
