WordPress attack highlights 30 million targets

Quote:
It'd be easy to dismiss the recent reports of a botnet attack on sites running the WordPress content management system (CMS) as yet another cry-wolf scare story from an exaggeration-prone web hosting company eager for business. After all, one of the earliest posts about the attack was from CloudFlare, and they've got form.

Less than a month ago, CloudFlare chief executive officer Matthew Prince spun the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against Spamhaus into "The DDoS that almost broke the internet", and he shamelessly told The New York Times that "These things are essentially like nuclear bombs ... It's so easy to cause so much damage."
