自從Google Reader關掉之後,各類RSS reader如雨後春筍般生出,其中一個有名的例子就是feedly,目前也算是我每天必定上來看看的網站之一。

今天傍晚一直到目前為止feedly都無法正常連上,取而代之的是Cloudflare的錯誤訊息頁面,稍早已經換成feedly自己的畫面了:feedly_down 連到部落格一看才發現多了這篇: http://blog.feedly.com/2014/06/11/denial-of-service-attack/

Denial of service attack

2:04am PST – Criminals are attacking feedly with a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). The attacker is trying to extort us money to make it stop. We refused to give in and are working with our network providers to mitigate the attack as best as we can.

We are working in parallel with other victims of the same group and with law enforcement.

We want to apologize for the inconvenience. Please know that you data is safe and you will be able to re-access your feedly as soon as the attack is neutralized.

We will update this blog post as soon as we have more information:

Thank you for your understanding,

/Edwin and Seb


6:25am PST – We’re making some changes to our infrastructure that will allow us to bring feedly back online. However, these things take some time to put into place and it may still be a few more hours before service is restored. Thank you so much for your patience and for sticking with us. Remember, none of your data was compromised or lost in this attack.

原來是被DDoS攻擊了… 差點以為feedly想吃錢烙跑,想說一掛就十個小時左右是怎樣? 不知道這次攻擊的目的是什麼,只能說希望feedly盡快恢復…
