"The WordPress.com blog-hosting service suffered a DoS (denial-of-service) attack that began Saturday and was still preventing users from logging in or posting to their blogs on Tuesday.

Matt Mullenweg, spokesman for Automattic, confirmed that the service experienced a DoS attack with spikes of up to 6 gigabits of incoming traffic, which was making some blogs inaccessible for about five to 15 minutes on Tuesday. Though service had mostly been restored, Automattic, which maintains WordPress.com, was still working on returning service to normal levels on Tuesday afternoon, he said." – Content courtesy of DoS attack prevents access to WordPress.com blogs | InfoWorld | News | 2008-02-19 | By Elizabeth Montalbano, IDG News Service

It always the same when someone provide (for free) a service to million people there are every time some bad guys to wish destruction of this service.

This is really sad!
