    What caused nationwide CenturyLink outage? The root of the problem was in Denver, memo says

    A bad network management card in Denver might have been the root of a nationwide outage for CenturyLink customers that lasted more than two days and brought down some 911 services. A notice to CenturyLink’s “core customers” was posted by security journalist Brian Krebs on Twitter over the weekend saying the network card at a data center in Denver was “propagating invalid frame packets across devices,” which caused a number of subsequent issues that required the company to reboot its equipment. In an email to Denver Business Journal, CenturyLink officials said the company is “still conducting formal post incident investigations and analysis" of the outage.
