The problem stems from a performance issue with our tasks database. We’re working on optimizing our database before we get it up and running again. Your data is safe—we just can’t sync it to your devices right now.
Wunderlist Support, however, notes that your data is safe although they can’t sync it to your devices right now.

Until a fix is delivered, be sure to stay tuned to this web page, as updates will be delivered there live as they occur.Further reading: Microsoft, Wunderlist
