Monitoring - Our engineering team has implemented the required fix for monitors that use the old stack, as described in our KB - Emulated and Selenium API. We have tested and deployed this fix to the following nodes while we continue full regression testing and will deploy it to all nodes after testing is completed

Ashburn, VA - AWS Cloud,
Dublin, IE - AWS Cloud,
Washington, US - Azure Cloud,
London, UK - Azure Cloud,
Arlington, VA - Tencent Cloud,
Mumbai, IN - Tencent Cloud

Update - We have published a blog with detailed information on this issue
https://www.catchpoint.com/blog/lessons-from-an-internet-outage-issues-caused-by-lets-encrypt-dst-root-ca-x3-expiration

Please be reminded, Catchpoint did not experience outages; however, it did detect that some servers were not properly sending certificates and being impacted
Oct 2, 16:42 EDT
Update - Certificate issue for Object and API - Javascript tests is now resolved, we have finished updating all of our nodes. We are still working on making similar updates for our Emulated and API - Selenium monitors.
Sep 30, 17:54 EDT
Update - Today's issue is caused by an expired root CA certificate, used to sign server certificates issued by Let's Encrypt. This certificate expired at 10AM EDT today, September 30th. There can be two classes of issues which can cause your customers to not be able to connect to your site due to this certificate's expiration. The first is because the client device or OS has not been updated to include updated CA certificates. The second is because the client device or OS relies on underlying libraries which fail as soon as they see the expired CA certificate from the server, regardless of the presence of non-expired alternatives.

Catchpoint has updated all our public nodes (Backbone, Cloud, Last Mile, Wireless) to resolve these certificate errors for Object and API-Javascript tests. We are still working on making similar updates for our Emulated and API-Selenium monitors, which are running in our older HTTP stack. If you are relying on these, you have several options described below. Importantly, make sure to resolve the issue on your server - fixing the certificate chains on the Catchpoint nodes will resolve the test errors, but your clients may still have issues accessing your site, API, or other TLS-based service.

1. Remove the DST Root CA X3 from your server. If you do this, your server will stop sending this as an option to clients, and clients won't attempt to validate it.
2. Enable ignore SSL errors in your Catchpoint tests.
3. Switch tests to API - Javascript or Object - these use newer Catchpoint monitors which rely on different underlying libraries and are already using the updated certificate chain.

Alternately, Catchpoint engineering is working on updating the monitors which rely on our older HTTP stack. We will update on their progress when we have more information.

Update - We are done updating about 50% of the nodes, we will provide an update when we have completed all of the impacted nodes.

Identified - We have identified a fix for this issue and are working on updating our nodes.
Sep 30, 11:00 EDT
Investigating - We’re investigating an SSL issue caused by another Let's Encyrpt root certificate that was set to expire at 10 AM ET on 9/30, causing Object, emulated and API tests to fail for some of our clients.

We will update here as more information becomes available.

Update - On Oct 19th, we will continue our effort to release Chrome 89 as the stable version which started June, 2021. While we have performed extensive testing, we anticipate a small set of enterprise nodes or websites might not work well with Chrome 89. We are rolling out a new feature with the Perseus release that will give us finer control over Chrome versions which are run by specific nodes, this new feature will help us resolve these incompatibilities if they occur.

For more details on how to choose a Chrome version please go to our KB.

If you have any questions, please contact us at support@catchponint.com.

In progress - Our Perseus release was originally scheduled to roll out this week. We found an issue in final testing and decided to postpone the release a few days to give our team time to address it properly. The new release date is next Tuesday, 10/19/2021. We're sorry for any inconvenience. We know you value the quality of data we provide and hope you'll find it's worth the wait.
Oct 19, 10:00 EDT
Update - Our next release, Perseus, will roll out on Wednesday, October 13, at 10:00 AM ET.

The Catchpoint Portal (portal.catchpoint.com) will continue to be available throughout the rollout, and your tests will continue to run and collect data. During this time, you might encounter the following:

- Individual clients will have a brief time (about 3-5 minutes) where alerts and charts will be inaccessible or delayed while we upgrade our applications.
- The REST API will experience a short downtime of about 15 minutes. The Alert and Test Data Webhooks will continue to operate throughout the rollout.

During the rollout, support tickets may still be filed via the Help Center or email to support@catchpoint.com.

Update - We are continuing to monitor for any further issues.
Oct 8, 08:28 EDT
Monitoring - We believe the issues are correlated to a widespread routing issue at Telia, a major backbone provide in US and Europe. The issue impacted several key companies that provide cloud and dns services.

The issue has improved. The impact to Catchpoint was limited to portions of our logging infrastructure for Real User Monitoring and Endpoint.
Oct 7, 14:13 EDT
Investigating - We are investigating an issue with our RUM data processing due to issues with multiple ISPs and our managed DNS provider in North America. Some RUM data will be missing for a small set of clients.
We’ll update here as more information is available.
