An unexpected problem has led to a network analysis bug affecting thousands of computers in Australia, leaving millions of users unable to access the Internet or access content they have paid for.

The ABC’s network analysis software crashed on Friday and it is unclear when it was first detected.ABC News has contacted the company responsible for the software and asked for an explanation.

The problem appears to affect a number of popular software programs including the popular OpenSSL and Oracle OpenSSL applications.

The software was released by Cisco last year, which has a history of developing software that is used by major online retailers such as Amazon.com.
