GoDaddy Goes Down, Anonymous Claims Responsibility

samzenpus posted about 2 years ago | from the protect-ya-neck dept.

Security 483

An anonymous reader writes "A member of the Anonymous hacktivist group appears to have taken down GoDaddy with a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). The widespread issue seems to be affecting countless websites and services around the world, although not for everyone. Godaddy.com is down, but so are some of the site's DNS servers, which means GoDaddy hosted e-mail accounts are down as well, and lots more. It's currently unclear if the servers are being unresponsive or if they are completely offline. Either way, the result is that if your DNS is hosted on GoDaddy, your site may also look as if it is down, because it cannot resolve."

Aqualung812 (959532) | about 2 years ago | (#41291831)

His point is that GoDaddy supported SOPA, which allowed companies to shut down websites on a whim.

If you continued to support GoDaddy after learning about this, then it is assumed you're fine with people's websites being shutdown for no good reason.

Therefore, why are you upset now?

You're the roofer on the Death Star. You knew the risks.

Re:You think this is a Game? (0, Insightful)

That might have mattered back when SOPA was still a thing people cared about. That was months ago. Your blame the victim mentality is appalling and ignorant.

i286NiNJA (2558547) | about 2 years ago | (#41292029)

So since people stopped caring about SOPA it's not a big deal now? It's getting pushed through piecemeal. I'm gonna laugh when your precious website can't be reliably hosted anywhere in the USA.

Re:You think this is a Game? (5, Insightful)

sohmc (595388) | about 2 years ago | (#41292025)

I highly doubt that they didn't know the details of the bill. The bill was available via Thomas and it's broad strokes were known for quite some time.

GoDaddy wanted to placate the MPAA/RIAA/etc because it was a business decision. Once they realized that they had a massive exodus of customers, they made the business decision to reverse their stance.

Their decision had little to do with knowing the bill. Their decision was made because it was the fiscally responsible thing to do. They probably didn't predict that the fallout would be as drastic as it was.

On top of that, you didn't read the TOS from GoDaddy. That allows *them* to turn your site off on a whim without prior notice. This might just be the hackers turning on the built-in kill switch for every GoDaddy site simultaneously.

Who instead of Go Daddy? (1)

My domain is registered with Gandi, but my web site is on Go Daddy. I feel like switching to another provider. What entry-level web hosting provider would you recommend using instead of Go Daddy? Is Dreamhost much better?

Re:Who instead of Go Daddy? (1)

Dreamhost is terrible. I've had good luck with BlueHost.com for a few people who wanted inexpensive.

Re:Who instead of Go Daddy? (0)

Re:Who instead of Go Daddy? (4, Informative)

heypete (60671) | about 2 years ago | (#41291963)

If you're already with Gandi, check out their Simple Hosting. It's pretty slick, as far as basic hosting goes: you get your own Apache/MySQL/PHP processes, the web server runs with the same permissions as your user account (so setting up stuff like WordPress is trivial as there's no permissions-related issues), can host multiple separate sites on a single instance, etc.

Their VPSs are pretty standard paravirtualized Xen systems which work out pretty well (I ran a Team Fortress 2 gameserver for a while on one and it was stable and reliable).

As a domain customer you get a 50% discount code for the first year ($30/year rather than $60/year).

Disclaimer: Gandi customer, not employed by them in any way.

Re:Who instead of Go Daddy? (1)

thisisfutile (2640809) | about 2 years ago | (#41292079)

We're using DiscountASP.net and because I didn't set it up, I can't say how comparable their rates are but I can say the service has been pretty solid. In 3 years we've only been down for a couple of minutes due to problems on their end. When there is an issue, they're pretty quick to resolve it and they keep you updated on their forums.

Re:You think this is a Game? (-1)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#41291917)

Hosting your site on godaddy is not pushing everything out into the cloud. That's shared (or sometimes dedicated or even virtual) hosting on physical servers located in a DC. Either way you're still vulnerable to a DDoS attack.

The cloud is something different all together.

Re:You think this is a Game? (4, Insightful)

Bryansix (761547) | about 2 years ago | (#41291919)

You are right, I could. I don't sit on mutiple ISPs in a SAS70 rated datacenter with diverse physical location redundancy and power backup. So I let them do it. It would be trivial for me to move my DNS records. That totally misses the point. The hacking is causing loss of productivity. I know this is funny to you but for the people affected it is a giant waste of time and nothing will be accomplished by it.

Re:You think this is a Game? (2)

You don't, but if you did your DNS would still work.

It is not funny to me, other than finding out what companies my company does business with that we clearly should not be since they let godaddy host their DNS.

Cinder6 (894572) | about 2 years ago | (#41292113)

Well, it explains why my podcast app didn't update my favorite podcast--just ran a whois to confirm that they're hosted on GoDaddy.

What's obnoxious about something like this is that the attack isn't likely to get the attention of the general public. Most people will see their favorite site is down, say "Aw, shucks," and check again later. The news likely won't even mention this, what with election season going on and giving them better yellow journalism fodder. The people who will know the reason why some of their favorite sites are down are like those here on Slashdot: The same people that already dislike GoDaddy.

I'm not saying that protest is a bad thing--far from it. But ineffective protest is. All this attack accomplishes is to hurt the little guy--the people who use GoDaddy.

But maybe I'm wrong. Maybe GoDaddy's customers will all jump ship because of this. I doubt it, though.

Re:Glad I moved my domains (0)

Hover.com. Beyond happy. They give you a discount on moving, their support service is fantastic (ask for their concierge service when you move - it's faster and they can make sure niddling details in a complex migration are taken care of), and they don't swamp you with spam and upsell (particularly since most of godaddy's "premium" crap is included like domain name protection and ID security). Plus they're in Canada. Love Canada.

Re:Glad I moved my domains (1)

heypete (60671) | about 2 years ago | (#41292067)

I have some domains with NameCheap (which others have pointed out is quite good) and others with Gandi.net.

NameCheap has somewhat better pricing, but I prefer Gandi for most things. I rather like that Gandi's whois privacy is included by default in the cost of registration with compatible domains (.us, for example, does not allow private registration). The only public information they display is your full name and NIC handle -- the address and phone number are changed to that of their Paris headquarters and the email address is a spam-protected alias. I like that they display your full name, as their policy is that regardless of if you have the privacy service enabled or not your domain is still yours and you own it. Other registrars have the policy that they own (for as long as the whois privacy is enabled) your domain and are leasing it back to you.

Not for lack of desiring to go elsewhere, but I'm too lazy. I don't use their overpriced hosting and DNS. Instead, I use dreamhost for that stuff, and some AWS servers for the bigger sites...

Godaddy isn't awful if you get coupon codes and don't do anything to draw undue attention to your domains. I have one that gets me 30-60% or something off on my renewals and new purchases.

DDoS? (1)

Honestly, it looks more like a routing issue to me. Our production servers can't reach Godaddy's DNS servers at all, but other computers in the same NOC (different IP blocks) have no issue. Our in office server and desktops (as well as my home server and computers) also have no issue with contacting Godaddy's DNS servers.

I could be wrong of course. But I'm really only experiencing issues with contacting Godaddy's DNS servers from certain machines while others have no issue at all (can't get to their website from anywhere though).

This will probably be the work of some guy who (quite rightly) opposes government interference with the free flow of information .... but has no qualms whatsoever impeding it themselves.

Isn't that how leftists think? Do as I say, not as I do.

"claim responsibility"? No, take credit (1)

udachny (2454394) | about 2 years ago | (#41292073)

Saying that something that is even known as 'Anonymous' can 'claim responsibility' makes no sense.

A group, like the IRA can claim responsibility. The Anonymous can try and take credit.

I think this will backfire. (4, Interesting)

So a bunch of non-profit groups I support are down thanks to these "activists".
SOPA opposition, "ends justify the means even if it means f*cking over everyone with our scorched earth actions", and the "if you were stupid enough to be supporting our enemy then you are just collateral damage because we are so right we're justified in harming you to make a point" aside, I don't think it will win them many fans.
