Keen eyed Blogactiv readers and users will have noticed that yesterday our homepage didn’t move. What happened? Did we have no new content? Did we not want to publish anything?
The truth is that for around 24 hours Blogactiv was under attack from what were either very sophisticated spammers of professional hackers, with IPs based in Germany.
Somehow, this resulted in a break in the RSS feed that enables content from individual blogs to reach the homepage and beyond. Thus, it looked as though Blogactiv had stopped. In reality, all of our blogs worked as normal.
We have managed to put a temporary fix in place, to get things moving again and are now looking for a more permanent solution. I and we at Blogactiv are sorry for the temporary break in service.Author : Stuart Langridge
