Our Website got Attacked Today!

At about 13:00 UTC today all our web-servers crashed due to a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack on the website. This attack (by an unknown group of hackers) caused the maximum allowed users to spike beyond what the system could handle. All three servers crashed and the message "Service Unavailable" was displayed.

We contacted our hosting company via phone right away and worked with them to restore the service. Now it was determined that it wasn't just the webservers that went down but unfortunately, the crash snowballed and took down the database servers as well.

Website service was restored again around 16:15 UTC.

We apologize for any inconvenience this attack may have caused you.

Kostas,

We have not had any feedback from students who have taken the PMP exam in this regard. So I would have to say that it's an optional read.

However... be aware that that it is an official PMI global standard, and that questions for the PMP may come from many sources. But the big consideration is of course: How much time do you need to invest studying it <---> the actual chance of getting a question based on the standard on your exam.

My suggestion: If you already own a copy of the standard, then do take 2-3 hours of your time to skim through it and get a high-level understanding. If you don't own it, then don't worry about it.
