Anonymous hack of Go Daddy over and done with by 9/11

After an Anonymous hacker took credit for an interruption of service to a giant company that provides on-line services to some 5 million websites, the company's executives denied they had lost any credit card or customers' personal information such as passwords.

Domain Name Service (DNS) interruption began in late midmorning, at about 10:20 PDT, according to Elizabeth L. Driscoll, vice president for public relations. By mid-afternoon, the problem had been contained and service restored, according to a series of Tweets issued to customers to keep them posted.

The largest registrar of domains and websites in the world, the service's chief executive apologized and promised his customers a token of his appreciation in the near future, something he termed as a “gesture of good faith” in acknowledgement of the service interruption.
