Feedly extortion

I've been having sporadic trouble with Feedly for a week or so.  From the Feedly blog:
"Denial of service attack
Posted on June 11, 2014 by @feedly   

2:04am PST – Criminals are attacking feedly with a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). The attacker is trying to extort us money to make it stop. We refused to give in and are working with our network providers to mitigate the attack as best as we can.

We are working in parallel with other victims of the same group and with law enforcement.

We want to apologize for the inconvenience. Please know that you data is safe and you will be able to re-access your feedly as soon as the attack is neutralized.

We will update this blog post as soon as we have more information:

Thank you for your understanding,

/Oliv, Seb and Edwin"
I wonder what the whole story was with that guy who had his short Twitter name extorted, and then returned to him.
