I'm getting the ame problem with bullsonwallstreet.com - previous
whitelisted rates of 20000 now down to 150... not recovered yet.

And I throttle all requests to a pretty low level for the REST API...
but still down at 150!

Let's hope that this attack ends soon, and honest users can have the
performance needed back again soon!
