Google and Yahoo have both announced that they are working to resolve the server outage that hit the internet last week.
Google’s statement says that the server “is running on its own.”
Yahoo’s statement said that the outage “is a serious issue” and that the company is working with “a variety of parties” to “resolve the issue as quickly as possible.”
In a blog post last week, Yahoo announced that it was temporarily suspending services on its popular search engine, Yahoo!
Finance, and other Yahoo!
Yahoo said it was doing this to help it restore service to affected users and to allow it to “review and update” the servers.
Yahoo says that it is working closely with Google and the rest of the internet giant’s security team to “prevent further disruption in the coming days.”
“We’re committed to working with the community and with other companies to help resolve the situation as quickly and efficiently as possible, and we’re providing updates as necessary,” Yahoo wrote.
Yahoo added that it has “worked closely with our partners on our contingency plan for this incident,” adding that it’s “continuing to evaluate all our options to provide a smoother transition.”
Yahoo has a long history of problems with server infrastructure.
In February, it was forced to cut ties with Google after Google announced it was shutting down Yahoo!
Mail and other services.
In October, Yahoo said that it had lost $1 billion in revenue due to the outage.
Yahoo also recently shut down its Bing search engine and announced that Google had shut down Yahoo.com.
