|Long Description||Handsome student athlete Jack Hamill is the star of the football team at Shoreham College, and the apple of his proud mother's eye. His best friend, coach Brad Hathaway, has recently married Eunice, Jack's former girlfriend. Refusing to let marriage slow her down, Eunice spends the coach's money frivolously, running up huge debts, while continuing to throw herself at Jack. A college audit shows that the coach has embezzled over ten thousand dollars from the football fund, and before the scandal goes public, he commits suicide. Eunice uses a fake letter from her deceased husband to blackmail Jack into marrying her. When he dumps his sweetheart Cecily and announces his engagement to Eunice, Jack's mother realizes something is terribly amiss, and vows to investigate. Famed Russian actress Alla Nazimova, a family friend, helped Richard Barthelmess break into motion pictures, when he co-starred with her in War Brides (1916) and came to the attention of D.W. Griffith. In 1919 he rose to fame starring in the classic Broken Blossoms and again in 1920's Way Down East, which features the iconic Hollywood scene where he leaps over ice floes to save the heroine from the falls. In 1921 he achieved widespread success with Tol'able David, starring in a role many critics consider his best. Barthelmess would deliver powerful performances in The Patent Leather Kid (1927), The Noose (1928), The Dawn Patrol (1930) and Only Angels Have Wings (1939) before retiring to live off of the proceeds of his successful real estate investments. The Drop Kick features a fine supporting turn by Hedda Hopper, who would go on to fame as Hollywood's leading gossip columnist.|

We are not hosted at GoDaddy, but we are registered there and have our DSN settings stored with them. So when Anonymous attacked GoDaddy, we were impacted too.
It is very sad that hackers don't think about all of the people that will be impacted by their actions. Even though we were not attacked directly, we were impacted and most of our users were also impacted.
Our site was up and running the entire time and because many DNS servers cache the address to our site, we had a steady flow of traffic during the attack. But the number of visiters to the site was clearly lower than normal. We had a significant drop in visitors and even after things were fixed by GoDaddy things weren't quite normal again until quite late in the evening.
If you or your applications were impacted by this attack we are deeply sorry but there was nothing that we could do to prevent or recover from this. Just like you, all we could do is wait for GoDaddy to deal with the situation.
Here are some news links you can read relating to the attack:
Update 9/13/2012 - It appears that this may not have been an attack after all. GoDaddy is saying that this was not an attack but a configuration error that cascaded through their routers taking their services off line for about six hours. Be it an attack or an accidental configuration issue makes no real difference to the end users that couldn't gain access to the web sites hosted on or registered with GoDaddy.
Although this was all very annoying, no personal information seems to have been accessed such as passwords, credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers or alike. Personally, being a technical person, I feel GoDaddy handled this situation quite well. I am not happy that it happened or that our users were unable to get to the site. But the tech team at GoDaddy did a very good job at correcting the problems.
