Several websites and online services were temporarily down this Thursday, 22, after a failure in the hosting provider Akamai.
In the list of affected services were PSN (PlayStation gaming network), Steam, Airbnb, iFood and MercadoLibre. According to the website Down Detector, which registers the instability of the network, the accesses were interrupted around 13:00, and continued until 14:30.
On Twitter, Akamai confirmed the problem and softened it saying that everything was working about an hour later. The company also reported that the problem was not the result of a cyber attack on its systems.
Akamai is experiencing a service disruption. We are actively investigating the issue and will provide an update in 30 minutes.
