Feedly’s “extortion” attack continues with third DDoS wave

Feedly is suffering yet another distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, the third since the news aggregation service was first targeted on Wednesday. The company, whose service was going up and down like a yoyo at the time of writing, tweeted on Friday that it was “working on it” — presumably with CloudFlare, as the CDN and security firm’s name appears on Feedly’s error page. When the first wave hit, Feedly said the attacks were part of an extortion attempt that apparently also targeted other unspecified firms.
