So far, this specific issue seems to have only impacted sites across Europe and the US. Fastly report that they have investigated the issue to restore impacted websites and to fix the original issue; “we have identified a service configuration that triggered disruption across our POPs (points of presence) globally and have disabled that configuration. Our global network is coming back online.”What is clear, however, is that when so much infrastructure is put on a single source, on a single CDN or Cloud hosting company, when this source buckles, the disruption it causes is vast.‘Liability for loss of service will probably be covered by the service level agreement with customers of paid-for cloud services but the agreements will typically not cover all losses sustained’ – Prof Rebecca Parry of Nottingham Law School.

‘They were lucky that this was a configuration error, and not a malicious attack. To reduce disruption, a Service Level Agreement (SLA) needs to meet the organisations requirements. This means that there needs to be a back-up plan to repoint services. There needs to be assurance regarding security controls. That way, organisations will know what data is cached, for the performance of their services.’ – Chris Cheyne, CTO, SecurityHQ
