|Long Description||This upstart hockey champion from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, has led a seemingly charmed life, garnering awards and firsts since he learned to skate at age three: * He is the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins--the youngest player in history to be named such--and has led his team to its first Stanley Cup since 1992 * In his first season Crosby became the youngest player in NHL history to score 100 points in a season * He became the youngest player in NHL history to score 200 points overall * Crosby was the youngest player to win the Art Ross Trophy for the most goals scored in a season in 2007 * He has also won the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Lester B. Pearson Award, the Mark Messier Leadership Award and the Maurice Rocket Richard Trophy * When asked if anyone could break his records, Wayne Gretzky said that Sidney Crosby could * After a suffering crushing defeat by the Red Wings in 2008, Captain Crosby led his Penguins through a tough season, an intense playoff and past those same Red Wings in the finals to win the 2009 Stanley Cup Championship, but they could not repeat in 2010 * Crosby scored in overtime of the gold medal game at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics to help Canada to its 14th gold, a record number of gold medals by any country in the history of the Winter Games.|

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.
