Cloudflare Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@tqbf The problem was never DoH itself. The problem is using Cloudflare as default resolver.
For crying out loud @Cloudflare no I am not bloody interested in your WAF. Stop with the endless calls/emails about the damn thing.
@PowerDNS_Bert @Cloudflare @Akamai They run different DNS servers to prevent large scale issues thankfully
curse you, firefox. you've forced me to interact with cloudflare, a thing i was somehow browsing the web without already doing, and taken away the service provided by that company i chose out of all available options because i judged them to be the most trustworthy: comcast
@gravislizard Man I'm really starting to hate how much the entire internet revolves around ****** Cloudflare. Half the websites you go to are using cross-website content from Cloudflare, sometimes the entire website is X domain but the entire thing is Cloudflare, ****
@TheHackersNews I have been using DoH with cloudflare since the feature was made available on Firefox. Also using CloudFlare on my phone instead of the Google default with no issues on either device.
@FinalFrog yeah I've been using cloudflare and google dns for years, comcast sure as **** isn't trustworthy and they're buggy too
@robdaemon While I agree default off would have been nice, it has a warning letting you know it's on from the start. Pretty sure all DNS services are bad in their own way, google, cloudflare, my own ISP (which creates it's own popup data warnings)
oh and in addition, your lookups ARE now all being CCed to cloudflare without your consent. so. hope you trust them and they never get subpoenaed, etc.
That means, from now onwards, Firefox will send all your DNS queries to the #Cloudflare servers instead of the default DNS servers set by your operating system, router, or network provider.
@textfiles Remember when cloudflare went down and took a chunk of the internet offline, that was great, can't wait for more of that.
This is a good example of knowing your threat model. DNS over HTTPS is good if you want to prevent your ISP or network owner from knowing what sites you visit and monetize that data. But it requires you to trust Cloudflare, which falls under US jurisdiction.
@voretaq7 For those who are especially privacy conscious, there remains the option of standing up your own DoH server on the cloud infra of your choosing… For the net “commoner”, Google or Cloudflare at their worst behavior can’t be worse on average than big ISP.
@textfiles like, this sucks ass but it really is just swapping out one vendor for another for the vast majority of users, and those people both don't know who runs their DNS and don't care. their ISP sells their dns lookup data, maybe cloudflare will now but they *wink* said they won't
@mdhardeman Like a kid who fed their brussels sprouts to the dog because they don't want to eat them I now have two problems: The kid gets scurvy (DNS inconsistency), and the dog has dangerous ass-gas (Google or Cloudflare is mining my DNS data along with everything else).
@textfiles Press release says cloudflare and nextDNS are 'trusted' providers. And I suppose I trust them more than my cable service's resolver, but less than the resolver I run myself.
@p3k @textfiles As someone who has been IP blocked by Cloudflare for no reason at all, and who has had trouble with them because of their trash service rendering entire swaths of the internet inaccessible, this is bullshit of the stinkiest caliber.
@t_a_w @llimllib to be fair: if you previously set up something like OpenDNS or a pi-hole on your home network, this now circumvents that and goes to CloudFlare. I don't know that I trust cloudflare more than I trust Cox
I see 2 issues: US only for now, and nothing prevents Cloudflare from misusing the data. Better off with a VPN if you are really privacy-minded.
@jpmens @Cloudflare 1 today. So not too bad!
@RichBurlew Hi Rich! I've been unable to get on the forums these past 2 days. I keep getting Cloudflare error 522 whenever I try to load anything. Tried looking tha error up and it might be a problem w/ the site.
Mozilla's implementation is *really* bad - it overrides the default DNS server with Cloudflare except on very specific cases. Chrome will do something slightly better: if your DNS server supports encryption, then it gets turned on automatically.
Mozilla sending DOH to Cloudflare is weird. Guess I’ll be continuing to use Safari, the world’s second worst browser.
@Cloudflare if something like this happens, is documented on help pages and there is no communication available it looks like an organizational systematic failure to me and that's something I cannot trust my most delicate infrastructure to run on
Damn! Cloudflare’s on AMD!
@amyngyn @atlas working the cloudflare support queue was similarly informative, if less so in a pure business sense. people use the internet for SO MANY THINGS, many of which you'd never thought of a lot of CS:GO loot trading sites and shady pirate anime streaming sites tho
@Cloudflare your customer support is a joke. I’ve being paying you for 3 years on a lapsed domain I thought was canceled. Telling me multiple times to login with the email I haven’t used for 3 years is not a solution.
@uberchuckie @Cloudflare Every server runs every service (including Workers).
@rsterbal Sure, we're about 1/4 the cost of Amazon S3 so from a storage perspective photo hosting makes sense, and we also partner with Cloudflare as a CDN solution to help with frequently accessed data!
@iamjankoch @brad_frost Only that one time that cloudflare went down 😑
ugh why is my website not responding, I turned off Cloudflare and it's still just not connecting fff guess it's time for a support email, at least my email is still working
@troyhunt @haveibeenpwned @Cloudflare @AzureFunctions I still remember "Have I been prawned" Being pwned is one thing. Being prawned is a completely different problem.
Turns out idiot has an aversion to Google... and Cloudflare... and everything.
TLS 1.3 just passed TLS 1.2 as the most common encryption protocol for requests to the Cloudflare network.
@CloudflareHelp @Cloudflare That's the problem - the abuse form does not work!
@YouWager_FF keep getting access denied when trying to log in because of cloudflare. please help
@formcarry just finished going through your landing pages and was about to sign up, but now I only get 502 errors from cloudflare 😅🙈 the website drops in and out, and the post request in the register form just gives me 502.
@alexjgarrett @Cloudflare Outside America & Europe, internet speed is a huge issue & people prefer video quality over anything. I'd go with quality as well any day. I hardly ever watch anything at 1.5x... it makes me feel like I might skip something important.
Putting the trading hat that I should never put on on, I’m definitely not buying anything today. But if you feel like you’ve “missed” moves in companies you’ve been watching like Uber or Cloudflare, idk why not to nibble a bit
@Cloudflare your customer support is inexistent. I can't access my own company account because the recover password does not work and no one assists. The bot does not work
Cloudflare's business model depends on telling you to vaguely run a scan on your network, not telling you what to do when said scan passes, and then not telling you how to fix it so that you can stay insecure and their clients have a reason to buy their services.
@kissgyorgy @Skarlso @davecheney @Cloudflare AFAIK requests has many security issues,but you are right that your project is unlikely to be affected. But I think that having a software not updated years and incapable to run with the latest dependencies is definitely not a sign of high quality.
@brad_frost Wow, that's bad. I usually register with Namecheap or Google Domains and manage records with Cloudflare.
@Skarlso @davecheney @Cloudflare I don't understand this mentality. I have the freedom to never upgrade a Python version ever. I pinned my dependencies and cached in my local Pypi mirror, so I don't have to upgrade them either (security is not really important in this case).
@Padgriffin_ @Bluehasia @furaffinity Cloudflare is fairly good at stopping it but not perfect, yes. Not knowing the exact services they are getting I can't be sure but considering how often there is issues like this I doubt it's adequate.
“experts”, say it didn’t happen. Companies like @Cloudflare host these holocaust revisionist sites, registrars like @tucows hide site owner details. Deniers like to hide in plain sight; businesses, including @Facebook, help them do it. Watch the documentary. 3/3
@thatgreydragon They are still down because they are using cloudflare. There is a couple of different ways to prevent an attack like this, but those all require investing appropriately, and FA's UI, general usability, and less than stellar user experience don't show me that's their priority.
@brad_frost such poor form and such a 1990s thing to do too mediatemple. hope your sites aren’t back up asap brad. i use @cloudflare & @Uniregistry for all things domain & dns. good luck

@OdusanyaV @MTNNG @Cloudflare Not certain if MTN blacklists 220.127.116.11 as a bogon IP or if the issue is just bad routing configurations I'd need an MTN router to confirm that, sadly I'm not on the network anymore Today's post was out of anger for a lady I know who'd been delayed cause of the issue.
After hours of cursing @nginx the problem is ... @Cloudflare Access. Sunday is a day of rest ... and it seems many of us find hacking on pet projects to be restful.

@TiemmaBakare @MTNNG It should be illegal. @Cloudflare made a post when they chose to go with 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 for their public dns service. Some ISPs still have this issue where you can't use the first.
@EAHelp I tried google dns , Open DNS and cloudflare DNS .... same issue ... I can't play a single match help me plz
@BazYat @kittyz213 @Dragoneer @furaffinity He was able to get around CloudFlare, that's the issue
@witchyglitch It's probably a propagation issue if anything. Looks like cloudflare is having trouble resolving in most places today, eeep.
@BanefulRedux @ben300 because"their servers couldn't handle it" which again proves how incompetent they are because that doesn't make sense at all. They could easily tell cloudflare to serve the site via but still make the origin connection via still bad, but much better for the user
@BanefulRedux @ben300 Cloudflare literally doesn't help at all when your Origin IP can be found everywhere because you're not using CF correctly. Their use of CF is more on the CDN side rather than actual protection.
@PeterDaveHello Added www behind cloudflare. Should temporarily fix it.
@Tombfyre @furaffinity They simply bypass cloudflare thanks to fa's terrible security
@latechnica1 The easiest way to use heroku and your domain and free ssl now would be to sign up for @Cloudflare is pretty easy and is a great service Otherwise upgrade your heroku account to get a paid dyno
@checkium @furaffinity They never at any time blamed cloudflare for the ddos
