What happened? From 11am to about 12:30pm PST we experienced a DDoS attack that resulted in intermittent 429 errors across all ReadMe projects
We identified and blocked the source of the requests. And are closely monitoring our SSL layer for any repeat offense.
How are you going to fix it? We are super excited to be switching to Cloudflare tomorrow morning at 10am PST for our CDN and SSL layers. ReadMe will be faster, more reliable, and more secure from incidents like this. Look out for all the details of our upgrade tomorrow on blog.readme.com
