Anonymous Own3r: I May Have To Bring Down GoDaddy “Again”

By: Chris Crum - September 11, 2012

The GoDaddy saga continues…

To recap, on Monday, the company experienced a major outage. Many sites were down as a result. For hours, the company would not give any details about what happened, other than to basically say it was aware of the problem and was working on it. A member of Anonymous going by the handle Anonymous Own3r took credit for an attack on GoDaddy resulting in this outage. Today, GoDaddy put out a statement saying that service has been fully restored, and that it was not a hack nor the result of any external influence. Just some internal issues.

Here’s what Anonymous Own3r had to say about that:

“I think I will have to bring down again, so this way they would admit instead of hiding the attack,” Anonymous Own3r said in a later tweet, before retweeting this one:

It will certainly be interesting to see what happens from here.

    Funny how I didn’t know about the outage, nor did it affect my websites in the slightest bit (because I only use Godaddy as a registrar). Eventually some members of anonymous are going to slip up and get caught and put in jail for a very long time.

    Lets see what this “AnonymousOwn3r” can do. I dont believe he/she was the real hacker. Anyone can make a twitter account and claim whatever. Sounds fake to me

    Yep!!! Down again! Anon, this ain’t fun. I’ve got kids with medical issues and I’m trying to communicate with those that can help and send/recieve medical docs. I need my email, please.
