    Anyone having problems with Feedly? This may be your answer...

    Denial of service attack
    Posted by @feedly

    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.

    /Edwin and Seb

    Thanks. I was wondering why my Reeder app wasn't updating and I sync with Feedly.

    I'm starting to get my RSS feeds, however, there's still a lingering problem with the initial syncing so I'm assuming the DoS attack is ongoing.

    I find it amazing or disconcerting how anxious we get when we cannot connect. We’ve become so dependent on the Internet that whenever a part of it stops working, even for a short period of time, we freak.

    Yeah, I’m not getting any of my feeds yet, either.

    Your right. And much more when we leave our cel phones at home too.

    Feedly has updated their blog/status page:

    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.

    And, they’re back:
    11:30am PST: The second line of defense is up and wave #2 has been neutralized. You should be able to access feedly via feedly.com, feedly mobile apps and third party apps. These criminals are determined to try to extort some money and we are determined to say no to extortion and focus on building a stronger feedly instead. Thanks again for your overwhelmingly positive support throughout the last 2 days.
