Long DescriptionWhen King Eggnog rashly offers the hand of his daughter Princess Miranda in marriage, Sir Bigwart sets out on a daring quest with his faithful squire Toby in tow. The quest is to bring back a tooth of the Ogre of Ghastly Fell, a fearsome, flesh-eating giant whose breath is so bad it can knock you at a hundred paces and whose two heads are constantly squabbling with each other. Sir Bigwart's real talent is for empty boasting so he's going to need a lot of help from his resourceful squire on the way - which is a little awkward since Toby is secretly in love with Princess Miranda himself. To make matters more complicated, Miranda is bored of embroidering her dad's coat of arms on cushions - she's coming along for the ride and anyone who tries giving her orders had better watch out.

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.
