Downtime Stories June 9, 2016

Gmail is experiencing downtime this afternoon as some users are having issues with receiving messages and accessing their account. Google confirmed the issue on its apps status page and said it was investigating reports as of 1:56PM EST.

The company provided a later update at 2:46PM EST today noting that it’s continuing to investigate and confirming it’s discovered that “some messages sent to consumer Gmail accounts are being rejected due to authentication enforcement.”

Google plans to provide another update by 3:46PM EST with more details on when it expects to resolve the issues.

We’ll keep you posted here with further updates and let us know in the comments below if you’re still having problems with your account.

Feedly experiencing more downtime following second DDoS attack (update)

Update: It appears Feedly has resolved the issue.

Yesterday, Feedly experienced some downtime due to criminals executing a DDoS attack on the service. The service slowly crawled back to being almost usable overnight last night, but apparently, the service is experiencing yet another attack this morning.

7:26am PST: We are currently being targeted by a second DDoS attack and are working with our service providers to mitigate the issue.

As with yesterday’s attack, your data is safe. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update this blog post as more information is available or the situation changes.

As of right now, the Feedly front page and blog are loading just fine, but clicking the “Login” button is showing a “Sorry! feedly will be back soon.” message. Notably, many people went flocking to Feedly following the shutdown of Google Reader, so it goes without saying that many are without a very critical part of their workflow as we wait for the service to come back online.
