Facebook services spanning Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook itself have been shut down following an attempt to hijack the company’s domain name.
Since Monday afternoon, many people have reported being unable to access the services because a hacker, who has not yet been identified, has nuked the DNS A; an address file that contains the IP address of the domain name as well as AAA records for Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp.
Earlier the company had tweeted about WhatsApp, saying, “We’re aware that some people are experiencing issues with WhatsApp at the moment. We’re working to get things back to normal and will send an update here as soon as possible.”Trending:
