All Major Banks In Australia, Telstra, AusPost, Hit By Major Outage

UPDATE: (4:30pm) Akamai’s Prolexic service appears to be the issue. Prolexic is used by companies to protect against DDoS attacks.

A major outage has hit all major banking apps and online services: CommBank, ANZ, Westpac and NAB are all reporting issues, as are The RBA’s website and Virgin Australia’s website.

It is not known what has caused the issue, but either Amazon Web Services or Akamai  appears to be the culprit.

A number of websites for American airlines such as SouthWest Air, Delta Air and United Airlines are also down or having problems.

Snapchat, Battlefield, Doordash, Yahoo! Mail, Steam, Discord, Comcast, Shopify, AOL, Navy Federal Credit Union, Vanguard, Discover, Coinbase, Cashapp, Quickbooks, Twitter, Reddit, and many others are also experiencing issues.
