Earlier on Wednesday, Tumblr hosted a question-and-answer on the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo, Syria. It’s unclear if the believed DDoS attack might be related to the ‘Answer Time’ discussion.

Tumblr was one of more than 80 popular websites that were hit by three separate DDoS attacks on Dyn DNS, the internet traffic management company, on October 21.
That targeted attack was believed to have been on the Internet of Things, or the multitude of smart devices such as webcams and thermostats that connect to the internet.
A DDoS attack occurs when a server is overwhelmed with traffic in a targeted attack.
