We are getting a strange issue. Until yesterday, we where able to add pages to site which have anonymous access enable. They were working as expected (no login prompt while accessing page). However today when we create a new anonymous page and try to access it, the page prompts for login.

Further more if we make changes to previously created pages and publish them. They work as expected (no login prompt).

What could be the issue.
