Microsoft scrambles to fix global outage
US tech giant Microsoft yesterday said it was working to fix a networking problem that had left users across the world struggling to access tools like Outlook and Teams. Thousands of incidents were logged by the tracking website Downdetector, with complaints spiking in the hour from 0700 GMT and particularly affecting users in Asia and Europe. "We've isolated the problem to a networking configuration issue, and we are analyzing the best mitigation strategy to address it without causing additional impact," the firm said in an update at 0900 GMT. Microsoft did not reveal how many users were affected and did not respond to AFP requests for comment.
