Both Facebook and Instagram were unavailable for approximately 40 minutes late on Jan. 26 due to an outage that was initially feared to be a hacker attack, thanks to public claims made by a hacker group. However, Facebook has denied that it was the victim of an attack.
This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems," Facebook stated. "We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100 percent for everyone."
