Microsoft products suffer major outage - reports

An outage is affecting Microsoft products, from Outlook to Xbox, around the globe, according to social media and news reports. Those attempting to access Outlook have received an error notice, first reported around 7am ET.

Authentication issues for Microsoft products including Skype, OneDrive and others have spiked worldwide, according to social media. Down Detector, a website independent of Microsoft that measures such issues, received more than 3,600 reports regarding Outlook beginning just before 7am ET. Log-in issues account for nearly half of reported Outlook issues, while receiving messages was also a highly-reported problem.
