Facebook and WhatsApp bug for more than six hours

After the flaws discovered last September, place a huge Facebook bug that paralyzes the social network.

Facebook is never done with its problems. Last September, Facebook teams announced that they had discovered vulnerabilities that had been open for about fourteen months, and that allowed hackers to connect to any account and to many services through the use of the Facebook button. Login. What to scare users away.

Bad luck, today, a new problem arises. Since around 5 p.m., an outage has completely blocked the use of Facebook in Europe and the United States. Indeed, it is impossible to post anything on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatApp. Messages, photos, videos, no media can escape this bug. Sometimes connection to these services is also not possible. This Facebook bug is not regular. Sometimes the services return to normal and other times the outage returns with a vengeance.

Mark Zuckerberg, the boss of the four social networks mentioned above, indicates on Twitter that they are aware of the problem, that they are working to solve it, and that it is not a DDoS attack.
