Safaricom OUTAGE!


#1

Is anyone else experiencing this? No internet connectivity for the past one hour, and apparently for the first time ever dialing customer care 100 goes mteja, go on try it


#2

Yeah, I tried calling.


#3

Some of us rarely call, unless reminded to. And when you don’t need Mpesa, and have a WiFi connection, we’re mostly good.


#4

The outage is official. Safaricom says they are working to resolve the issue


#5

are people on GPON / FE on safaricom also off? Im miffed at what could possibly be happening.


#6

Safcom fibre has been okay,at least on my side,that is

Well…


#9

Well this happens to all servers, worldwide. My small server gets 80 attempts a day.


#10

Speaking of hacking, just how do people hack Mpesa PINS?


#11

Hacking is basically guessing a password or PIN. Once you are in, field day for you.


#12

Ha! They’re crying just because of 10,000 daily hacking attempts? I didn’t think I’d ever call Safaricom a small fish but I am now. They simply need better IT guys. If they got on the radar of real hacker groups they’d go belly up in a day.


#13

Hacking M-Pesa pins is not really hacking but a form of identity theft. They trick the owner of the phone number to divulge personally identifiable information and use it to clone their SIM card.
