There should be a sad song written about this one. Yesterday, Godaddy had a massive Internet outage and the hacker group Anonymous has taken credit for that.
Of course at this writing Godaddy hasn’t fully acknowledged the hack attack. They are saying the outage was due to a “…corruption of network router tables.”
Now, Godaddy has been around for a while. And I’ve seen many entrepreneurs setup up their first websites with Godaddy and have the same company host their domains. There is nothing wrong with this.
But, this outage should give pause to anyone who is interested in Internet security and keeping their websites, email, etc. up and running. The outage lasted about 6 hours and right now it’s hard to tell how much business was lost.
While Twitter has their Fail Whale, I think that Danica Patrick had a frowny face the whole time this was happening.
