GoDaddy goes down! According to techcrunch millions of websites are affected by the hack, however, Mashable is reporting thousands. It appears that CNS1.SECURESERVER.NET, CNS2.SECURESERVER.NET, and CNS3.SECURESERVER.NET are failing to resolve.
Twitter id @AnonymousOwn3r said to be from Brazil – has tweeted “I’m not anti go daddy, you guys will undestand because i did this attack.”
Rationale behind the attach is said to be caused by GoDaddy supporting (SOPA) Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act (PIPA), which is an effort by large corporations to control the data thereby controlling the internet. Unfortunately the sad part is that while this is a loud and clear statement to the opposition of SOPA and PIPA, smaller businesses have been affected by these outages. A more strategic attack may have served his purposes better than angering small business owners who are more than likely against SOPA and PIPA.
