THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, first it was you now its GoDaddy.com:
The largest domain name registrar on the Web, has been taken offline, and a self-proclaimed member of the Anonymous hacktivism collective is taking responsibility.
The administrators of GoDaddy confirmed on Monday that they were suffering from technical issues, which the website TechCrunch reports to be impacting a multitude of websites and their affiliated email accounts that are hosted through the service. Although the company has not discussed the specifics yet, a self-described member of Anonymous says that he or she is responsible, a claim that has not been verified yet.
On Twitter, user @AnonymousOwn3r writes, “the attack is not coming from Anonymous coletive [sic] , the attack it’s coming only from me” and that the the action is being carried out “to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that i can not talk now.”
I haven’t had access to email all day. My work is suffering from it and I don’t see the point? I thought Anonymous stood up for the people and didn’t do malicious attacks on innocent citizens. First TheDirty.com and now my email account. How am I supposed to live?
Anonymous didn’t hack us. The video above was just someone trying to take credit claiming they were part of Anonymous Collective. I actually believe in Anonymous’ cause and will support them if need be.- nik
