Oct 5 (Reuters) – An error during routine maintenance on Facebook’s network of data centers caused Monday’s collapse of its global system for more than six hours, leading to a torrent of problems that delayed the repairs, the company said on Tuesday.
The outage was the largest that Downdetector, a web monitoring firm, said it had ever seen. It blocked access to apps for billions of users of Facebook (FB.O), Instagram and WhatsApp, further intensifying weeks of scrutiny for the nearly $1 trillion company.
In a blog post, Facebook Vice President of engineering Santosh Janardhan explained the company’s engineers issued a command that unintentionally disconnected Facebook data centers from the rest of the world.
Facebook’s systems are designed to audit commands to prevent mistakes, but the audit tool had a bug and failed to stop the command that caused the outage, the company said.
We should ask if @sffh fells at all bad for Facebook because Freddy Fat-Fingers strikes (out) again. Must have been the 9th inning.

After the 60 minutes revelations they needed to do some scrubbing. Book it.
