Uncategorized Under DDoS Attack #tech #thursday

I was just going to post this as a link on Twitter, but there’s a problem: TechCrunch is hosted by, so there’s reason to believe that the site may not be up all that often today. Suffers “Extremely Large” DDoS Attack.

The linked-to blog article gives no indication what prompted the attack – if anything – and more worrisome: no indication if this is a traditional DDOS or if a WordPress software exploit is responsible. This website, of course, is proudly powered by WP, though I may live to regret that statement by the end of the day.
