In case you didn't know, earlier this morning, at approx. 2am MST, there were widespread dns outages affecting a large portion of the U.S. (coast to coast). This lasted approx. 3 hours and was not limited to ISP's.
Additionally, google's own public DNS servers were affected. (22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199)
Does anyone have ANY information as to what caused this?
Why aren't more people talking about this? Seems like a big deal to me.
If you want to verify this for yourselves, go here: http://downdetector.com/status/
and plug in just about any large named business/site and you can see the graph spikes at 2am MST.
Some of the services/sites/orgs affected: youtube, google, level3, comcast, twitch, amazon, battle net, netflix, yahoo, xbox live, uplay, steam, itunes, CNN, reddit
