Reddit Hit with Massive DDoS Attack

Reddit suffered a sustained DDoS attack on Friday beginning in the morning and continuing on into the late afternoon. Some functions were disabled to mitigate the attack, but the site has now recovered and is functioning and operational at this writing.

Confirming that the attack was indeed malicious آ– meaning not a result of an influx of organic traffic to the site from those who had come to peruse the many high-profile threads discussing the suspects in the Boston bombings case.
