    UPDATE: August 29, 2018, 3:29 PM Eastern

    Quora went down again today, shortly after 12 PM Eastern Time. Problems are still being reported on other outage sites as of right now, but nowhere near as many as between 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM. At the moment, I’m able to access the website but unable to log in (the blue “Log In” button is disabled.)

    One thing I did notice was that my browser’s “MinerBlock” extension detected a cryptoware script on Quora’s front page about a half-hour ago. It didn’t flag this morning, or even when I logged off a few minutes before the site went down. (Note: I use bigger security firepower than Google.)

    The outage world map seems to indicate DDoS attack on L3 Communications.

      Hi Cyberluddite,

      Thanks for reporting the outage Quora is experiencing.

      The website is working fine now, but speed is very slow and I believe it is still affected.

      Will keep you posted with the updates.
