Telekom Outages

German Telekom is still struggling to identify the root of the connectivity issues faced by 900,000 of its subscribers. My router has not been hit by the problem but it registered three times more errors of the form “Configuration Server could not be reached. (A001)” -usually harmless- yesterday and today than in the last 20 days or so. Which tells me that either the restarts suggested by Telekom overwhelmed their servers or that the Telekom theory that hacker attacked certain types of customer routers is probably wrong and we are dealing with a Telekom problem of some type – unless of course this was a denial of service attack on Telekom config servers and some teleports fail if they cannot reach one within a certain amount of time.
