According to their Twitter account and website, WooThemes has been on the receiving end of a DDoS (or Distributed Denial of Service) attack for nearly 30 hours now. The WooThemes site was moved to a new server with a DDoS firewall early this morning, but the attacks have continued.
Today was intended to be the launch of WPBundle, a new source of WordPress themes. The launch has been indefinitely postponed until the servers are stable again, as WPBundle relies on WooThemes’ checkout and support systems. WPBundle and WooThemes first announced the partnership back in August.
WooThemes is hosted with VPS.net, who they say are doing a great job working with them to stop the attack. The exact source of the attack has not yet been determined. Until the attack is stopped, WooThemes has set up a P2 blog to update users on the downtime.
