“Cloudflare experienced a DDoS attack that caused intermittent connectivity issues to www.cloudflare.com for a few minutes. This DDoS attack did not affect any service or product capability that Cloudflare provides, and no customers were impacted by this incident,” a spokesperson told BleepingComputer.

“Cloudflare’s website is deliberately hosted on separate infrastructure and cannot impact Cloudflare services. To be clear, our website is fully functional and up and running.”
