The Lizard Squad hacking group, which apparently successfully hijacked the website of Malaysia Airlines on the weekend, claimed responsibility for Facebook’s downtime in a tweet. However, according to the company itself, that’s nonsense.
It said in a statement:
Earlier this evening many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram. This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100 percent for everyone.
Now its back to normal !
