Here’s the scoop about this.
Please find below official write-up with regard to last week’s YouTube issue. This report has been prepared by District OIT Network Enterprise team. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you. Ewa
On Wednesday, February 8, YouTube blocked our access to their site due to an errant device within our network sending unknown/questionable network traffic. In blocking access to their site, YouTube was following industry best practices, taking precautionary measures to ensure that their infrastructure remained secure. This issue also caused the City Colleges firewall to mis-categorize YouTube as a threat to our network and block access in turn. By Thursday, February 9, the CCC Network Security Team resolved these issues and CCC users are once again able to visit YouTube from within our network. We apologize for the inconvenience this outage may have caused you. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org
