Can't get in their own datacenters.... i am laughing so hard... out of breath....
@lilithsaintcrow I'm dying over here...
I MEAN... WHO CONTROLS BUILDING ACCESS WITH "LOGIN WITH FACEBOOK"?
@thegibson is this “circling the wagons”, Zuck getting mad and taking his toys home, a hacking, or what? I can’t decide which of these prospects is the funniest.
@lilithsaintcrow ok, analyst hat on.
Bgp is notoriously weak, and always has been ripe for abuse... but it usually takes access... initial blush, insider threat.
@thegibson Does this tell you anything? I just see numbers. https://twitter.com/BenjaminEnfield/status/1445104389014835213
@lilithsaintcrow their routes are gone.
Normally this would be a relatively quick fix.
But they are HOURS into this.
@thegibson Do you think Zuck is throwing a tantrum to either distract from the whistleblower or to take his toys home?
@thegibson I’m literally sitting here sipping tea watching this go down and feeling sort of vindicated. I can only imagine how actual hackers must feel.
@thegibson @lilithsaintcrow Not letting employees on campus ensures plausible deniability as well, since the vast majority of FB employees don't actively mean to be evil. They're just pawns getting a cushy paycheck in return for their service to king and company. Keeping them away ensures safety from prying eyes and future whistle-blowers while the "network is fixed."
I don't know what probability this could be true; but, it does add up as a plausible course of action senior management could take.
Your chart is ready, and can be found here:
Things may have changed since I started compiling that, and some things may have been inaccessible.
The chart will eventually be deleted, so if you'd like to keep it, make sure you download a copy.
This is what happens when the younger generation says "We don't need out-of-band management."
@thegibson meanwhile, the last data center in my control has eight USRobotics Dual-Standard modems that get monthly dial-in tests. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten "I totally understand why we have those, now" type of messages from my teams today.
@thegibson many nerds driving very fast in their Tesla’s from their nice homes…. Wait do you mean they’re literally locked out????
As in the outage also took out the key card readers and physically locked them out?
That would be HILARIOUS if that actually happened
Yes. #Facebook can't even access their own buildings, not just DBCs.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
