VIMEO Under Attack

VIMEO Under attack:

What is wrong with vimeo? 
From vimeo.com:

Sorry for the downtime, let us explain!

Hi friends!
On Friday, Vimeo fell victim to a denial-of-service attack (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack) that caused the site to be unavailable to our members and visitors. This downtime affected only Vimeo.com — all embedded videos remained playable and working properly.
Our entire team worked as quickly as possibly to get things back up and running, and, as of right now, the site is online and stabilizing well. It’s sitting upright and eating solid bits of data already!
You can rest assured that no user data was compromised, and NONE of your content (even all those weird videos you uploaded that one night) was lost or affected in any way.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Things like this are a major bummer and not very fun to deal with. Thanks so much for bearing with us during this attack.
Love,
Vimeo
