WordCamp.org admin-ajax self-ddos

Yesterday there was an outage, which was caused by an admin-ajax infinite loopLoop The Loop is PHP code used by WordPress to display posts. Using The Loop, WordPress processes each post to be displayed on the current page, and formats it according to how it matches specified criteria within The Loop tags. Any HTML or PHP code in the Loop will be processed on each post. https://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop.. The logs didn’t provide enough information to debug, though, so we’ll need to gather more information to start troubleshooting.
