Akismet Downtime

. July 1, 2010 . 0 Comments

Akismet has reported an issue with it’s service on the morning of 30th June.

“there was a database error that ended up causing API slowness for 3-4 minutes, which could have manifested itself on your end as timeouts or spam getting through.

Although the downtime was short it did alert us to a weakness in our system we’ll address so this won’t happen again.

Our last major downtime was in September 2007”

Version 2.2.9 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available and can be downloaded at: http://blog.akismet.com/2010/06/02/akismet-plugin-2-2-9/
