GoDaddy Blames Outage on Cascading Server Failure, Not Hacking

Posted by at 10:01 am on September 12, 2012

Rather than confirming the alleged hack by an Anonymous member, GoDaddy blamed serious technical problems for a six-hour service disruption that affected nearly all of its customers on Monday. The outages were caused by “a series of internal network events” that disrupted the DNS service on the company’s equipment, GoDaddy’s CEO Scott Wagner confessed in a statement.

The failure was caused by “a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables” according to a GoDaddy statement. GoDaddy continues to claim that no customer information such as credit card data, passwords, or names and addresses were released.

During the attack, GoDaddy’s Twitter account promised that the company was “working feverishly to resolve the problem as soon as possible.”
