MILLIONS of Americans are unable to receive or make phone calls from their cellphones due to a ‘major outage’ affecting the entire United States, Your Content is first to report.

“The diversity of the attacks indicates that this is cyber ecosystems attacking U.S. infrastructure,” said a source briefed on the situation. “Federal agencies are currently monitoring the situation very closely.”

According to Down Detector, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, MetroPCS, Verizon and Simple Mobile are experiencing highly unusual outages affecting the entire east coast, including a major outage in Washington D.C.

A security and network engineer stated that a DDoS (Denial of Service Attack) would be unlikely and the broad scope of services down would rule out DNS hijacking. It’s possible the attack method is BGP hijacking which is sophisticated and has occurred in the past although not on this scale. BGP is usually used for data-centers looking for internet redundancy for CDN (Content Delivery Network).

“The regional discrepancies in outages and service interruptions point to bad foreign actors using BGP hijacking. Because server infrastructure is regional, some users may be able to use services while others cannot.”

“The backbone of our national infrastructure is compromised. You can’t communicate on internet, cellular phones, gaming is down, social media, it’s hitting everything,” the source continued, noting Minecraft and Fortnite are down.
