GoDaddy Websites Hacked

GoDaddy was an absent father on Monday. The web-hosting juggernaut was the victim of a possible hacking attack, resulting in outages for its millions of clients. A message on the GoDaddy.com website Monday read, “Status Alert: Hey, all. We’re aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We’re working on it.” Many of GoDaddy’s clients are small businesses. The outage began around 1 p.m. EST. Though the hacking collective Anonymous was initially blamed for the attack, someone named “Anonymous Own3r” tweeted, “The attack is not coming from Anonymous coletive, the attack is coming only from me.’
