Millions of websites down due to alleged GoDaddy hacking

goDaddy

After a whole bunch of ‘page not found’ messages in a row, I realized:

GoDaddy, the domain registrar and Web hosting company, is down, perhaps taking millions of websites down as a result.
“Status Alert: Hey, all. We’re aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We’re working on it,” @GoDaddy tweeted Monday.

A quick call to the company’s customer service line resulted in this voice message:

“If you are having a problem with your email, we are aware of the problem.”

TechCrunch reports that GoDaddy email addresses are down, as well. The blog suggests customers concerned with that their site has been affected can check online status at Down For Everyone Or Just Me.

Twitter accounts claiming to be associated with the hacking group Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack.

“Basically, every GoDaddy site on the planet just crashed,” @TibitXimer tweeted. [CBS]
