Yahoo Up, But What Brought It Down? [Updated]
Yahoo’s homepage is back up.
An update from Yahoo PR:
“For a brief period this afternoon, Yahoo.com was inaccessible to some users. We have identified the issue and are working to correct it immediately. We know that this may have caused some inconvenience and we apologize to our users who might have been affected.”
No word yet on what caused the outage, although sources close to the situation said it was a crash caused by a routine code push.
There were some odd occurrences on Yahoo’s domain name system (see above) during the outage, but it appears to be cleared up.
