Does anyone know where the original statement for a fix in Jan 2017 came from? I am being asked for the information from a journalist wishing to follow up the greater story.
But having dug around, it seems to have been a statement directly to the Daily Star! Now i'm not calling shenanigans, but that hardly seems like a rock solid source of information. I can provide the huge amount of evidence of systemic outages from user reports, but that "Down till 2017" is the key piece of evidence.
