"The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack."

So Anonymous0wn3r or whoever was just claiming responsibility for something they had no hand in? The router tables just corrupted themselves?




> So Anonymous0wn3r or whoever was just claiming responsibility for something they had no hand in?

Yeah, with a name/handle like Anonymous0wn3r they sound very trustworthy. If they claimed they had a hand in something, it must be true.


I don't trust Anonymous0wn3r but I distrust GoDaddy just the same. Of course those aren't the only two answers, it could have been external and not Anonymous0wn3r as well.


But didn't he announce the attack before-hand?


Got a link on that?

Not sure if those tweets were actually from before it happened.


I searched for those tweets mentioned in the Techcrunch article (first from GoDaddy and first from AnonymousOwn3r on this topic) and the time stamps are:

* GoDaddy: 10:35 AM - 10 Sep 12

* AnonymousOwn3r: 11:57 AM - 10 Sep 12

So, AnonymousOwn3r does not seem to have announced the attack before it happened.

Gee, why would an anonymous person on the internet lie?
