About an hour ago WordPress.com was hit with a massive Denial of Service attack a.k.a. DDoS that made it impossible for everyone to update blogs and websites that run on the service. According to WordPress.com founder Matt Mullenweg the attack was severe enough to overwhelm the blog system’s data centers in Chicago, San Antonio and Dallas. Because of that for a brief period WordPress disabled writes to the service preventing anyone on the service from publishing new posts.
CBSMiami.com was affected by the attack, as were all other CBS-owned TV stations who are hosted on the premium version of WordPress.com
