What was leaked to the web? I have not heard of this part of the outage.

Too bad it can't STAY down. The world would be a better place if all netizens made a diaspora back out to the thousands of *good* sites.

I hear it was just a routing issue, not a hack.

My best guess is that someone pushed a routing policy update, and it got distributed to all routers in the network, locking them out and requiring manual intervention at each one because they couldn't revert the policy globally. Once the actual services became unreachable, DNS entries were likely removed by the global load balancers (or the global load balancers got locked out too).

If anyone has ever been inside a Facebook building, you will know that reliable network operation is NOT the company's first priority. There is propaganda all over the walls, and you'd be wrong if you thought the posters said things like "Always be careful when working inband!"

I wish it was that funny! But it isn't. You know those signs people put up that say "In this house, we believe..." followed by a bunch of idpol slogans?
Imagine that, scaled up to every interior wall of every office. That's Facebook.

Before my agency was formed i was with a 'non it' agency.   

Our call center area had a bunch of demotivational posters from dispair.com framed put up on the walls.  Not one visitor asked, it shows you how much people pay attention. 

Took me a couple of days to realize they were not 'real' as i passed the area to head to my little hole in the wall place to sit at  ( literally. i started out with a piece of a table stuck to the wall. no planning for the new guy ). Once i got to know people i stopped in the area to talk and looked up, "hey, now that there is damned funny".  First one i noticed was the phone with a cobweb on it, 'if we ignore them long enough"

There are LOTS of technologies that we use on a daily basis that receive in-band updates, and all the updates have brick potential. Our group of companies (i feel like a tool saying that, as a kid a tagline like that would infuriate me to go build my own compan...wait. Thats what happened, nevermind) deal with onsite customer equipment and the WORST CASE SCENARIO, most EXPENSIVE and HORRIFIC situation is an "inband" software so called upgrade that ultimately results in onsite tech dispatch. We can fake anything else but when a key has to go into an ignition and highway traffic has to be fought to get a marginally qualified warm body to the site.... profit goes right out the window. Just throw the money in the trash.

//mansplained:

brick potential: pushing an update or upgrade to a device that worked just fine until you fucked with it.

in-band: control data is sent in the same conversation as the actual conversation

profit: money leftover from paying everyone else that you can safely allocate to black jack, roulette, and hookers.

Sure, but carrier grade routers that speak BGP have a command called "commit confirmed".

You set up your changes and tell the router to apply them, and then you have to enter another command within a specified period of time (120 seconds is popular) to tell it "yes, I am satisfied with the results of this change; make it permanent." If you don't enter that second command within the time specified, the router assumes you locked yourself out and automatically reverts the change.

At the scale of Facebook, global routing policy changes would be applied by an automated tool that touches every router. But if they built the tool properly, it would do a "commit confirmed" and then perform some quick tests before permanently committing the changes.
But they obviously didn't do that, because the Facebook network was built by the kind of people who would be willing to work for Facebook.

I got a 3 day ban the same day it went down, I think. 

For posting a picture of Jules Winifred of Pulp Fiction along with his Ezekiel quote and... 

"And then you shoot the MFers in the face." 

Which, is actually, factually - what Jules does after he recites this quote to his victim. 


Evidently the algorithm hasn't seen Pulp Fiction and made a zero-tolerance decision that shooting MFers in the face is something you just can't say on Facebook. 

Then, the asked me for feedback on Facebook. I told them Facebook sucks - and that I'm giving them a 30 day ban on my content - and pointed out that every time I go away, they send me needy e-mails telling me how much fun my friends are having and trying to get me to come back. "You MFers need me more than I need you."
