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:
whooa @godaddy is denying that it was hacked by me! they don’t wanna show their cybersecurity is bad this way they would lose customers !
“I think I will have to bring down godaddy.com again, so this way they would admit instead of hiding the attack,” Anonymous Own3r said in a later tweet, before retweeting this one:
@AnonymousOwn3r be careful, it could be they were told to deny it so as to invite another attack, so they can try and catch you.
It will certainly be interesting to see what happens from here.
