Forbes: Feedly and Evernote Go Down As Attackers Demand Ransom

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jaymcgregor/2014/06/11/feedly-and-evernote-go-down-as-attackers-demand-ransom/

I use Feedly to read blogs and curate the content you see on this blog. Therefore, so long as Feedly is down, I will not be posting very much. Once Feedly has mitigated the attack, you’ll see me posting again.

Take this as an opportunity to remember to use an anti-virus program and scan for malware as well. DDoS attacks are made possible by botnets, made up of idle computers belonging to oblivious/tech-ignorant people.
