It’s funny how you do not realize how important an app is until it’s down!

Case in point, 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. (Official Feedly Blog)”

Truthfully I’m not thrilled about what is happening to Feedly but glad the company chose the wiser (albeit more expensive) option by refusing to give into the demands of parasitic losers who do nothing to contribute to the overall greatness of humanity.

Sadly I can’t do more for Feedly than patiently wait although if anyone uses their services and finds them invaluable then I would highly recommend upgrading (as fending off these attacks is not cheap!).
