On Wednesday, Feedly was struck by DDoS attacks throughout the day after refusing a hacker's attempt to extort money out of the news aggregator to make the attacks stop.

Feedly isn't the only service stricken by denial of service attacks this week. On Tuesday, notetaking and bookmarking service Evernote was struck by a similar attack, which hobbled the service for the entire day.
Evernote service is currently unavailable. We are working to resolve the issue. Updates to follow. Thanks for your patience.
