GoDaddy goes down, taking countless websites offline; Anonymous claims responsibility
A member of the Anonymous hacktivist group appears to have taken downGoDaddy with a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). The widespread issue seems to be affecting countless websites and services around the world, although not for everyone.
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.
