WordPress running really slow?
Thanks for your patience everyone. Just FYI–we are also switching WordPress.com to a read-only mode when necessary to combat the attack. When WordPress.com is in read-only mode, you will notice a warning in your dashboard and you will be unable to post anything new during that time.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience, and we will keep you updated as we know more.
Thanks for batteing those criminals, hewsut & co.! :-D)))
@ timethief: OK, WP is not buggy! :-D))
Thank you all…. for this explanation.
I can’t even get onto my blog at all so i will ask what no-one else seems to have even thought about…are our blogs at risk???
No – I would be very surprised if anything happened to your site or data – WordPress.COM and their server farms are very professional and careful.
OK cheers for that.
> are our blogs at risk???
No. All data is safe and secure as always and 100% unaffected. This is a connection problem.
Would it help to put a “we are fighting a serious hacker attack, please hold off attempting to post new material until further notice” bulletin on the home page at wordpress.com so people don’t waste their time searching the support and forum pages?
Update: we have successfully blocked the DDoS attack.
We believe that is the end of this story, but there is a small chance that the attackers may eventually be able to get around the block. If that ever happens, you can always get in touch with us in support for an update or come find us here on the forums.
Three cheers for Staff. You guys rock! :)
Good work and thanks!
If you are free to say have you any idea of what the motive for the attack was?
I get so many emails from WordPress. Wouldn’t this warrant an email so that those of us affected aren’t sitting around refreshing and trying to figure out what’s wrong? I love WordPress and appreciate what you all are dealing with. I remember getting some kind of email or site notification in the past on something similar. Thanks.
Yes, Staff rocks! Thanks WordPress staff and thanks to the volunteers in the forum for helping keep us from jumping off our roofs over it. ;)
Think we may got an attack again…? Can’t load any pages… or even the blog itself.
Maybe the arabians are attacking protestors online? LOL~
Have you contacted Staff with all your details? http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
Can’t load any wordpress pages, not even my own. Hmm, DDOS round two? Other people seem unaffected though.
