Many websites rely on Cloudflare's tools to function and serve their information and media to users.

“Eyeballs attempting to reach Cloudflare sites in impacted regions will observe 500 errors,” a message on their website said.

Cloudflare said that the issue was found shortly after being reported and implemented a fix.

The issue continues to be monitored should any further problems arise.
