Well folks it’s possible Anonymous did this, but there is another possibility here as well. Obama is wanting to sign an executive order for a cybersecurity bill to take over the internet. If he had this done, it’s a perfect justification for the executive order. This may sound far fetched, but very possible.
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.
Then the other side of the story:
It is likely no coincidence that on the verge of President Obama’s plan to sign an unconstitutional Executive Order (EO) implementing police state cyber security measures, the internet gets hit with one of the worst DDoS attacks ever perpetrated. Today, GoDaddy got “nuked” with a highly-coordinated DDoS attack, taking down its name servers, websites, hosted email and all its internal phone systems.
The attack itself was devastating not only to GoDaddy’s customer base, but also to the reputation of Anonymous itself. That was probably the whole point: to make Anonymous look like a group of online terrorists when, in reality, the real Anonymous group historically only attacks selective targets with strong ties to the police state.
Across the mainstream media, from PC Magazine (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2409516,00.asp) to CBS News (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501465_162-57509744-501465/godaddy-goes-d…), the mainstream media is falsely reporting that “Anonymous” claimed responsibility for the attack. But that’s simply not true: the “Anonymous Own3r” user claimed responsibility for it. And he added, in a Tweet, these words:
“It is not Anonymous collective it’s only me. Don’t use Anonymous collective name on it, just my name.” (http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/09/10/every-godaddy-registered-site-…)
So if Anonymous didn’t wage the attack on GoDaddy, who did?
Now that this attack on GoDaddy has been pulled off, you can expect a swift reactionary — and even “extremist” — response from the White House. Watch for a cyber security Executive Order to be signed and implemented within the next few weeks, and watch for this attack on GoDaddy to be cited as the reason for “needing” the EO.
