WordPress.com Sites Hit by DDos Attack

WordPress.com experienced its largest attack ever, reported tech news site, Techcrunch, today.

The DDos (short form for Distributed Denial of Service) attack lead to disruptions for bloggers who host on the free service, WordPress.com. (See this for explanation of DDos.)

While WordPress did get things back up and running, it does show you that free services and sometimes paid are vulnerable at times.
