I'm interested in hearing what the post-mortem will be. I think the best tweet I saw yesterday was "A leaf fell from a tree, Anonymous took credit for it". Or something like that.

A misconfiguration ?

They will never admit to that right ?

If they admit they misconfigured something everybody could sue them for that mistake right ?

It's easier to say: we got hacked we are figuring things out why, and never answering to it.

Re: GoDADDY.com gets hacked. DoS for millions of websites.

I've heard (unsubstantiated) reports that the issue can be traced back to an outage/attack within GoDaddy's DNS infrastructure. Assuming that's the case (I'm not a GoDaddy customer or have any inside knowledge) I came across this article today that indicates that GoDaddy's DNS infrastructure isn't as resilient as it could be.

Whether this has any impact on the outage or not, it is an indication that weaknesses were/are present within the hosting infrastructure for GoDaddy. (although recent comments on the article suggest that it may not be as simple as initial research suggests, pinch of salt required.....)

GoDaddy wouldn't even let me interview for a pentesting position because i didn't have enough experience, so is it ok that I take a little pleasure in this?

Yes, that is really funny.

THey said the fault was some corrupted routing tables.

I call that BS. I don't buy it. But hey, what else can they say ?

If they admit hacking, they could be liable for $$$$$$$$$$$$$

If they admit they screwed something up, $$$$$$$$$$$

Gonna have to blame server weevils, or solar flares, or USERS.

It was our fault.  :-[

This is just a filthy political game, if you believe that "Anonymous" exists, you really need to wake up!  :)

I've seen more production systems experience downtime because something broke/failed or someone messed up than I have caused by malicious actions of a third party.

I came across this article which would suggest this wouldn't be the case:

Obviously there is the potential to lose some customers over this, but I wouldn't expect a mass exodus.

Re: GoDADDY.com gets hacked. DoS for millions of websites.

It could just be PR spin, but GoDaddy CEO stating that this was an internal failure, not the result of a malicious third party.

Personally I'm inclined to accept this as truth, if you wanted to spin your way out a problem 'them pesky hackers did it' probably carries more acceptance from the masses than 'we screwed up'.
