What actually took Facebook down is the Covid insanity they pushed

You can’t put out so much BS without crumbling under its weight, as I’ve said many times and anyone over the mental age of 14 should understand from experience..


Below there’s a pertinent technical explanation of the situation from ZDNet.
What they don’t tell you is the cause of the cause:
Their organization and systems have been debilitated by the Covid paranoid policies and restrictions they pushed, scattering their human and physical resources and dissolving their coherence.
That’s what they tried to do to us, in fact, and it hit them too eventually.
Not only the BS they’re pushing, but the dumbing down strategies they’re involved in trickled up as fast as they trickled down, and that’s a second bullet they shot in their other foot.
Karma is not as mystical as presented by some folks. Prescribing poison has more adverse effects than the poison sometimes and it’s just logical. These inbred retardoid jackasses can’t see they turned on the gas. but they are still working inside the gas chambers they set for others.

What took Facebook down: Major global outage drags on

DNS appears to be a symptom of the root cause of Facebook’s global failure. Don’t expect a quick fix.

The old network troubleshooting saying is, when anything goes wrong, “It’s DNS.” This time Domain Name Server (DNS) appears to be the symptom of the root cause of the Facebook global failure. The true cause is that there are no working Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routes into Facebook’s sites.

BGP is the standardized exterior gateway protocol used to exchange routing and reachability information between the internet top-level autonomous systems (AS). Most people, indeed most network administrators, never need to deal with BGP. 

Many people spotted that Facebook was no longer listed on DNS. Indeed, there were joke posts offering to sell you the Facebook.com domain.  

Cloudflare VP Dane Knecht was the first to report the underlying BGP problem. This meant, as Kevin Beaumont, former Microsoft’s Head of Security Operations Centre, tweeted, “By not having BGP announcements for your DNS name servers, DNS falls apart = nobody can find you on the internet. Same with WhatsApp btw. Facebook have basically deplatformed themselves from their own platform.”


As annoying as this is to you, it may be even more annoying to Facebook employees. There are reports that Facebook employees can’t enter their buildings because their “smart” badges and doors were also disabled by this network failure. If true, Facebook’s people literally can’t enter the building to fix things.  

In the meantime, Reddit user u/ramenporn, who claimed to be a Facebook employee working on bringing the social network back from the dead, reported, before he deleted his account and his messages, that “DNS for FB services has been affected and this is likely a symptom of the actual issue, and that’s that BGP peering with Facebook peering routers has gone down, very likely due to a configuration change that went into effect shortly before the outages happened (started roughly 1540 UTC).”

He continued, “There are people now trying to gain access to the peering routers to implement fixes, but the people with physical access is separate from the people with knowledge of how to actually authenticate to the systems and people who know what to actually do, so there is now a logistical challenge with getting all that knowledge unified. Part of this is also due to lower staffing in data centers due to pandemic measures.”

Ramenporn also stated that it wasn’t an attack, but a mistaken configuration change made via a web interface. What really stinks — and why Facebook is still down hours later — is that since both BGP and DNS are down, the “connection to the outside world is down, remote access to those tools don’t exist anymore, so the emergency procedure is to gain physical access to the peering routers and do all the configuration locally.” Of course, the technicians on site don’t know how to do that and senior network administrators aren’t on site. This is, in short, one big mess.

As a former network admin who worked on the internet at this level, I anticipate Facebook will be down for hours more. I suspect it will end up being Facebook’s longest and most severe failure to date before it’s fixed. -ZDNET

Basically, these morons reset themselves and we can only wish them a Great Reset! 😀

This is an analysis of the official narrative, which can always turn out fake.
