Eh? No it’s not a new CMG branded beer it means that CMG was subjected to a pretty big Denial Of Service attack yesterday meaning that many readers were Shit Outta Luck when it came to accessing us.

Apparently some ¬†attacker was trying to find a way to log into our WordPress backend (and yes, it is an unpleasant as it sounds) resulting in too many requests and timing out our server. The issue seems to be exacerbated¬†by our French add-on which we’ve disabled for now.

Apologies, the site should work now though (although there will be some French articles in the mix for a little while).
