Yesterday Typepad was hit again and all its blogs were offline for a good part of the day and evening. This, by my count, is about the 4th time this has happened in the past month or so. I've read some providers were asked for a ransom in order to get their hack fixed. Maybe Typepad has also, I don't know. Maybe they never pay up which is good, but also bad. In any event we're back up again.
