[18:30 UTC on July 22, 2021] Update:

Akamai experienced a disruption with our DNS service on July 22, 2021. 
The disruption began at 15:45 UTC and lasted for approximately one hour. 
Affected customer sites were significantly impacted for connections that 
were not established before the incident began.

Our teams identified that a change made in a mapping component was 
causing the issue, and in order to mitigate it we rolled the change back 
at approximately 16:44 UTC. We can confirm this was not a cyberattack 
against Akamai's platform. Immediately following the rollback, the 
platform stabilized and DNS services resumed normal operations. At this 
time the incident is resolved, and we are monitoring to ensure that 
traffic remains stable.
