What the @$#@ happen to Godaddy?

Godaddy Hacked!Godaddy Hacked

That’s right Godaddy HACKED! If the website you’re trying to access won’t load, chances are it’s a GoDaddy joint that’s been taken offline in a massive hack for which one person is claiming responsibility.  The domain registrar acknowledged in a tweet that it was offline on Monday, and The Next Web reported the site’s DNS servers had been disabled as well, “which means GoDaddy hosted e-mail accounts are down as well, and lots more.” GoDaddy hosted more than 45 million domain names as of 2010, according to DomainSherpa.

Someone tweeting with the handle @AnonOpsLegion claimed responsibility for the attack on Monday, saying in a tweet that he or she had taken down GoDaddy’s servers “because well I’d like to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that I can not talk now.” @AnonOpsLegion’s profile identifies the account holder as the “security leader of Anonymous” and an “Anonymous official member.” There’s not much information available yet about what happened, but GoDaddy tweets that it’s “working feverishly to resolve as soon as possible.”

Godaddy.com is down, but so are some of the site’s DNS servers, which means GoDaddy hosted e-mail accounts are down as well, and lots more. It’s currently unclear if the servers are being unresponsive or if they are completely offline. Either way, the result is that anything whose DNS is hosted on GoDaddy appears as if it is also down, because it cannot resolve.
