Many major international media websites are currently down due to a technical malfunction. The exact cause of the problem is not yet clear.
Websites currently experiencing issues include Amazon, BBC, Reddit, Spotify, and The New York Times. Some websites are completely unavailable while others have issues loading items such as fonts or images.
The problem seems to be caused by a major CDN problem. A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a network of servers spread across different data centers in the world. This allows websites to serve their content faster.
But a small amount of CDN networks are able to keep up with the websites of major sites such as BBC. Malfunctions are generally rare, but when they do occur, they have far-reaching consequences.
