Community and blogging site LiveJournal is continuing to suffer a prolonged outage.

The service has been down since Monday due to unspecified data centre problems. Russian media firm SUP bought LiveJournal from original developers Six Apart back in 2007 before moving product development and design functions to Russia.

LiveJournal was hit by a DDoS attack earlier this year but a second attack does not appear to be the cause of this week's extended outage. ®
