Hi all,

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this currently, but I have a 
report from multiple sites (in different countries) that are having 
issues accessing various CloudFlare hosted sites (the CloudFlare website 
itself is working fine though). The issue is only with HTTPS, HTTP seems 
to be working fine. Issue appears to be happening for both v4 and v6.


me at jumpoff1 ~ $ openssl s_client -connect

I can reproduce the issue on web based proxy services as well, eg. 
https://hidester.com/proxy/ (US Server), 
https://www.vpnbook.com/webproxy (US Server).

Not sure how widespread this is as some people can access things, 
curious to know what others see.
