Long DescriptionOrganizational Behavior: Core Concepts was written with the goal of creating a short, up-to-date, practical, user-friendly, interesting, and engaging introduction to the field of organizational behavior. Angelo Kinicki accomplished this goal by selecting content on the basis of his experience in teaching and writing OB textbooks and the desire to provide a brief book on organizational behavior. The 14 chapters present concise coverage of key concepts needed to help students gain an understanding about individual, group, and organizational behavior. The focus is more on content than pedagogy in order to allow instructors the flexibility to incorporate their own case selections and supplementary materials into their courses. Another key feature of Organizational Behavior: Core Concepts is a boxed feature that provides information about ancillary materials that can be used to enhance student learning and to facilitate a more interactive learning environment. This box identifies when students can test their mastery of the content or enhance their understanding by taking one of 38 Test Your Knowledge Quizzes or 20 self-assessment surveys. The box also calls out when instructors might use 23 group exercises and 15 Manager’s Hot Seat video segments to supplement their lectures and facilitate student involvement and interactions. Finally, Organizational Behavior: Core Concepts contains coverage of cutting edge topics and timely examples.

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.

From 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.
