FuboTV has confirmed that a streaming outage preventing subscribers from watching the World Cup Qatar 2022 semifinal match between France and Morocco was caused by a cyberattack.
At approximately 2 PM ET, as users were getting ready to watch the World Cup semifinal, FuboTV subscribers found that they could not log in to the streaming service.
Instead, they were greeted with a CB_ERR_OPEN error, stating “ff: downstream not available,” when attempting to log in.
Subscribers could not contact support to report the problem, as it requires a user to first log in to the FuboTV site, which could no longer be done.
However, FuboTV soon tweeted that they were working on the issue and recommended subscribers stream the game through FOX.
