Wordpress is one of the Web's largest blog hosting sites is struggled to keep functioning by massive DDoS attack. Wordpress hosts 18 million sites and does a weekly average of around 600 million pageviews.

Matt Mullenweg, Wordpress' founding developer said, "the largest and most sustained attack we've seen in our six year history." Its effects hit all three data centers run by Automattic.

Mullenweg said, "It's currently been neutralized, but it's possible it could flare up again later," added to that, "We suspect it may have been politically motivated against one of our non-English blogs, but we're still investigating and have no definitive evidence yet."

DDoS attacks are unsophisticated but extremely hard for websites to defend against. The attacker directs a giant traffic surge to its target, overwhelming the site's servers and making it hard for legitimate users to access the site.
