SurfEasy Network Outage Explained In More Detail


Last week we reported on an outage that affected the SurfEasy network. The outage which happened on Monday October 8th lasted about an hour and prevented users from connecting to the service and also appeared to have left existing sessions exposed. SurfEasy has contacted us and given us more information about the outage and the steps they are taking to ensure that the issue does not happen again. For those of you that are not familiar with SurfEasy they are a private proxy network that is accessed through the use of a mobile browser (which is installed on a USB Key). This key has two partitions; a read only partition that contains the browser and a small writable partition for temporary files.  You can read more information about the SurfEasy Privacy key in our review of the product.

The Surfeasy private proxy network suffered an outage today starting around 10:00am and lasted for about an hour. There was no indication that there would be any maintenance or other issues with the network, but the service dropped offline leaving people with active sessions exposed and anyone that tried to connect unable to. Even attempting to connect to the Surfeasy home page resulted in a “This website is offline” error from the Cloudflare hosting service that Surfeasy uses.
