(CBS News) GoDaddy, the domain registrar and Web hosting company, is down, perhaps taking millions of websites down as a result.

 

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

 

A quick call to the company's customer service line resulted in this voice message:

 

"If you are having a problem with your email, we are aware of the problem."

 

TechCrunch reports that GoDaddy email addresses are down, as well. The blog suggests customers concerned with that their site has been affected can check online status at Down For Everyone Or Just Me.

 

Twitter accounts claiming to be associated with the hacking group Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack.

 

"Basically, every GoDaddy site on the planet just crashed," @TibitXimer tweeted.

 

"#TangoDown - godaddy.com," @AnonOpsLegion tweeted Monday, claiming that the Twitter account @AnonymousOwn3r was responsible for the breach. "TangoDown" is the term that Anonymous generally uses to signify that a website is down.

 

"By using / supporting Godaddy, you are supporting censorship of the Internet," @AnonOpsLegion tweeted again later.

 

GoDaddy was the target of protests after it was discovered that the company supported unpopular bills the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA).

 

GoDaddy did not immediately respond to CBS News' request for comment.

 

Great.... this is ****ing irritating ... I've got 300+ technicians and employees calling me wondering wtf is wrong with our mobile website

I would like to find the kid that did this and saw his head off while his family watched ... this is costing us quite a bit of money at the moment

 

thats a little much...you should blame godaddy as well, i know that anonymous is a very talented and intelligent group that can do much worse than this, but godaddy's security should be air tight and they should be ready for instances like this...

can you take down a hosting site like godaddy? without anyone knowing how or who exactly it was?

 

by my self most likely not but Anonymous is also a group of people.. not just a lone person.. as for knowing who exactly it was its very to have your IP address changed so you can't be tracked and other things done so they can't find out who it was.

get a bunch of computers infected and use them as hosts to deliver an unsuspecting packet attack on whatever source you tell them too

 

there is a program out there called smurf.exe basically its the same thing as a denial of service attack but you need access to alot of bandwidth and alot of networks if you want to take down big networks or websites

i know what you guys are saying(i have a major in IST plus a bunch of dif certs and a lot of SRA experience in the IT field) all im saying is what they do isnt very easy and your downplaying it a lot...it also shows people that the internet is not a safe place AT ALL if anything godaddy should be thanking them for exposing 1 of their many weaknesses

who cares if it was a hard thing to do?

 

They're still effecting people who are just trying to make a honest living.

 

you can say the same for godaddy not assessing their security needs well enough...im not condoning what their doing, but im also saying godaddy should be ready for this type of thing if they have all the honest hard working people paying them to host their websites...

That's like the folks that are suing the movie theater in Colorado where the guy shot all those people .. as if the theater should have expected to be the scene of a mass homicide

So you guys are claiming that Anonymous is just a bunch of 15 year olds? Have you guys even visited 4Chan? I'm assuming that's a no.

 

The website is a breeding ground for ****ing freaks, it's visited by countless of people on a daily basis. While most of Anonymous are brats, there are serious hackers involved too. And the more ****** publicity they get, the more they can push their agenda and actually get people to notice what is going on.

a movie theater shouldnt expect an attack...any hosting website needs to be fully aware of all threats or possible disasters and expect them to occur...its known that hackers are a potential problem for any website, commercial or non commercial...comparing this situation to that is like comparing apples to oranges....

yes i have been to 4 Chan tons of times 4chan-civil-war-boxxy-is-my-queen-El3XOb

 

stopped going as much after boxxy was gone :( which is another reason to say **** these kids as the ones who got her info and all that claimed to be with this group

 

oh and Pride i agree with you any hosting site should be ready for an attack at any time in this day of age. This is why i would never depend on just a website to make a living one thing goes wrong and your screwed

But they are obviously too obtuse to see the hypocrisy of their actions. They're always trying to fight the "man" or the "system" and they end up hurting the little guy.

It's an extreme example but it's typical victim blaming

 

Gas Stations should expect to be robbed so is it the clerks fault when he gets shot in the face?

another bad example...in most gas stations around here there are threats of robbery so there so the gas stations keep their registers and attendents behind bullet proof glass and you have to slide your money or credit card under the little opening and talk into the microphone so yes it could be the gas stations fault....

hell some fast food joints even have it in the hood....

its not victim blaming really its being able to judge foreseeable risk...are there going to be isolated incidents where a gas attendent is killed in a neighborhood that has had 0 murders or robberies in the past 15 years, yes, but you cant blame the gas station because it wasnt a foreseeable risk

 

as for a hosting website their **** should be AIR TIGHT because hacking is a foreseeable risk and it clearly wasnt, so now you pay the price...

Ahhh so we've gone from blaming godaddy to blaming me for having them as our host?

 

I'm sure you got my point the first time and are resorting to arguing semantics for some reason :confused:

There will always be vulnerabilities and people savvy enough to exploit them.

 

Flooding a site with enough drones until it crashes isn't all that sophisticated from what i understand and i don't think it can be prevented so easily. The few people actually behind doing it and remaining undetected does require some sophistication as does actually hacking sensitive info and remaining undetected.

 

I don't really support Anon's stance or actions on alot of things but in a sense i view them as a necessary evil and they have brought stories to light that needed not remain in the dark.

The problem with anon is they do these things without thinking of the collateral damage they cause to the people who are going to be most effected by it' date=' in this case it will effect the businesses that have sites hosted by godaddy far more than it will effect godaddy themselves.[/quote']

 

Actually, without knowing who these individuals are, I'd wager they are not only well aware of the impact of their actions - it's a calculated reason they do it. If I may borrow a line from Michael Caine, "Some men just want to watch the world burn." These types of anti-capitalism radicalist know that crashing websites will cause an economic problems for companies, it's unfortunately likely an appealing thought to them.

Well mmafighting is also down.

 

What these punks don't realize or even care is that there are thousands of small businesses that have their websites hosted by godaddy. Those people's sites are also down costing their owners hard earned money.

 

****s.

 

not sure if srs...

 

of course they realise this. They are trying to expose the larger company for what it is to its clients, small people go offline, they complain to their provider. the provider says 'hacker's pulled us down' they ask WHY... and get a dodgy answer, they (hopefully) research the WHY and find out the facts - and providing these people have a mind of their own - they change to a provider without such proclivities.
