GoDaddy Was Not Hacked. [UPDATE]
What claimed to be true was not actually true! Go Daddy fights back that what happened yesterday was not a result of ‘hack’, it was just due to some internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Earlier some anonymous hacker claimed that he was responsible for the hack, but hell, this seems to be upside down. Scott Wagner says GoDaddy was not hacked actually.
GoDaddy Was Not Hacked
This is what Scott Wagner, Go Daddy CEO, says.
Yesterday, GoDaddy.com and many of our customers experienced intermittent service outages starting shortly after 10 a.m. PDT. Service was fully restored by 4 p.m. PDT.
The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a “hack” and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
At no time was any customer data at risk or were any of our systems compromised.
Throughout our history, we have provided 99.999% uptime in our DNS infrastructure. This is the level our customers expect from us and the level we expect of ourselves. We have let our customers down and we know it.
We take our business and our customers’ businesses very seriously. We apologize to our customers for these events and thank them for their patience.
So GoDaddy was not hacked? I’m pretty sure Go Daddy is a big network, and their security will not be light, but unless it is something that happened with Ankit Fadia’s website, we cannot be sure whether it was a hack or not indeed.
