Go Daddy outages on September 10 not caused by Anonymous DDoS
Go Daddy is finishing recovering from what appears to be a corruption in its router tables. Yesterday, Anonymous blabbered quickly that they had constructed a DDoS attack on GoDaddy.com, causing its servers from being inaccessible from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. PDT. However, Go Daddy CEO claims it’s not true:
The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a “hack” and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
Go Daddy tweeted the following yesterday during this issue:
Status Alert: Hey, all. We’re aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We’re working on it.
