Any idea of the software affected? I presume it was a CMS?

A pretty poor piece of 'journalism'. If this hack knew anything outside his cloudy bubble of experience and had maybe read just the first 3 Google results for "PHP scalability", he'd know that PHP scales well. It has been proven so many times now.
If a PHP application appears to not be able to cope under big loads, it'll most likely be the data storage engine to blame.
This is dated flame baiting, not something I'd expect from the Register to be honest.
It's interesting that the most mature responses in this comments section so far have been from people defending PHP.
