Not sure if this impacts any of you, but we have our domains with GoDaddy, and their entire system of DNS servers seems to be unresponsive.

A quick Google search seems to indicate it may be a DoS attack by Anonymous, so that's fun.

Hopefully they fix it soon - our entire system (web site, email, everything) is down right now.

I'd appreciate hearing more news as you get confirmation if it is Anon or not. No business reason but a personal affiliation.

Update from my link:

Update 2: Anonymous is claiming responsibility. A member of Anonymous known as AnonymousOwn3r is claiming responsibility, and makes it clear this is not an Anonymous collective action.



AnonymousOwn3r’s bio reads “Security leader of #Anonymous (~Official member~).” The individual claims to be from Brazil.

Go Daddy Corp. reports that many of its customers' websites and e-mail services hosted by the company are offline.

The outage, which one customer said had been going on for hours, appears to have affected millions of websites, according to reports from Twitter, Internet message boards and blogs.

Go Daddy officials issued the following statement Monday morning on the company's official Twitter feed:

"Status Alert: Hey, all. We're aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We're working on it."

Shortly before noon, they added: "So many messages, can't get to you all... Sorry to hear all your frustration. We're working feverishly to resolve as soon as possible."

Around 1 p.m. Monday Go Daddy tweeted, "Update: Still working on it, but we're making progress. Some service has already been restored. Stick with us."

Elizabeth Driscoll, spokeswoman for the Scottsdale-based company, said Go Daddy was "experiencing some problems that have affected some of our customers" but said company officials did not yet know the extent or cause of the problem.

Driscoll said the outage began at around 10 a.m. Monday.

A person claiming to be a member of the hacker group Anonymous has claimed responsibility for taking down Go Daddy's network, but Driscoll said the claim should not be taken seriously without more information.

"I think it would be irresponsible to give that any credence right now," she said.

Edward Whittaker, a Go Daddy customer in Nevada, said he has several websites hosted by the firm, and they all were still down as of noon. He said the company's phone and e-mail systems also appeared to have been knocked out.

Go Daddy hosts more than 50 million websites.

Whittaker said the widespread outage appears to be unprecedented.

"I've never seen anything of this magnitude," he said.

Someone is really ticked that Danica Patrick is not really nude on the GoDaddy website.

She may have to to that route soon. How long do they keep paying race car drivers that crash every single time they race?

Just checked my sister's business's site that is on Go Daddy and it is down. I do work on it for her so I am surprised she hasn't called me yet to find out what is going on. Thanks for the heads up DeFace!

Our site just came back up. No guarantees it'll STAY up of course, but we're back in business for now.

I'm having problems seeing the pictures section. It diverts me to log in, except to view the last post & page shown on the menu. What would be the prob there?

Also, once I posted, I was directed to the media section and thread titles.

My post was referring to my company - not ChiefsPlanet. So no, nothing you're having trouble with on ChiefsPlanet is related to the GoDaddy issue.

GoDaddy claiming they weren't hacked; it was an internal offer according to spokesperson.

Could be.. of course, you should never admit to breaches... it just encourages the kiddies. So who knows.

That's what I was wondering. Do those of you who know the industry find this plausible or could it be damage control to maintain consumer confidence/not give the desired credit to the hackers?

It's definitely plausible. I'd say 60/40 that Godaddy is telling the truth... no way to know, nor any real reason to care much.

That's encouraging from the admin of this board. Especially since CP is running a version of vBulletin from 2009. And that has a thread full of folks complaining about malware infections coming in via XSS. Not making accusations...just pointing things out. Like Glen Beck.

I'm pretty sure I'd have more confidence in them if it was a breach instead of just their infrastructure taking a big dump. Saying it was an internal thing just further drives home that anyone hosting or registering with that organization is just waiting for something else bad to happen.

What I found was odd was that when this started to crop up yesterday I was able to log into the panel and confirm again that my DNS was hosted somewhere other than GoDaddy which made me unaffected. Then later in the day they just put up that parking page.

Unless the whole thing was down, they may have prevented some folks from mitigating the damage by trying to put the DNS records somewhere else.

(Yes, I know that by the time that it was all sorted that the new entries may not have propagated but whatever. That's not the point.)

Ha, trust me we are clean here. Our Vbulletin is fine... on a side note.. the new VB5 is coming soon and we'll be switching to that when it's out and stable. It's pretty bad ass.

Come on dude... This version of vBulletin is fine. That's silly.

And the thread of folks complaining isn't from malware infections from XSS. Nobody is getting infected. It's from people posting pics from sites known to host malware. Pics are getting flagged simply because of where they came from. There's no scripting going on.

Don't know what the deal is with my computer. Just got W7 updates, and they didn't help me. Can't get to the pictures section, just get the blank log-in page, before and after logging in.

Oh, well.

Dunno, man. Have you tried a different browser or computer?
