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.

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