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

Feedly News ReaderFeedly the RSS  (Rich Site Summary) news reader that many of us use on Android and iOS is suffering yet another distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, the third since the news broke that it was first targeted on Wednesday. The company, that seem to be having some sort of “Ground-hog Day”, tweeted on Friday that it was “working on it, Sorry for the inconvenience.”

Feedly said the attacks were part of an extortion attempt that apparently also targeted other unspecified firms.
