Now, DDoS attacks are often used to mask a real break-in and of course, if the crackers got in they may have changed some code, and that may have caused the problems with RSS feeds. I have to assume there were no break-ins, as the site owners did not report them. They DID report a DDoS, but a DDoS in itself does not change layout or RSS feeds etc.
