Go Daddy-serviced Web sites taken down in apparent attack
One hacker claims responsibility for the outage affecting sites for which Go Daddy provides hosting and DNS services.

Go Daddy's Twitter account confirmed the outage.
Web sites serviced by DNS and hosting provider Go Daddy were down today. A hacker using the "Anonymous Own3r" Twitter account claimed credit for the outage.
"Status Alert: Hey, all. We're aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We're working on it," Go Daddy acknowledged in a Twitter post.
A message on the Go Daddy Support site read: "Sorry for the brief delay in service. We're fixing an issue impacting one or more services. Thanks for your patience." A subsequent tweet said: "Sorry to hear all your frustration. We're working feverishly to resolve as soon as possible."
Go Daddy representatives did not immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment on the outage, and phone lines at the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company were busy. The problem could be affecting thousands, if not millions, of sites, given that Go Daddy is not only one of the biggest Web site hosters but also the largest domain registrar. The Go Daddy site itself was up, but Twitter users were complaining that numerous sites hosted by the company were inaccessible.
Meanwhile, there was a related tweet from the @AnonOpsLegion account: "#TangoDown -- http://www.godaddy.com/ | by@AnonymousOwn3r"
The AnonymousOwn3r account clarified in various tweets that: "it's not Anonymous coletive [sic] the attack is coming just from me."
"Duuude? This attack affects not only corporations but also ppl who support your ideology. whats the rationale?" one supposed fan of Anonymous tweeted.
Later, the AnonymousOwn3r account said in response to a question of whether he took down the whole block of DNS (Domain Name System) servers: "yes! it's not so complex."
That was followed by: "when i do some DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack i like to let it down by many days , the attack for unlimited time, it can last one hour or one month."
And the AnonymousOwn3r account explained his actions. "I'm taking godaddy down bacause (sic) well i'd like to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that i can not talk now."
Updated 12:36 a.m. PT with more information from the AnonymousOwn3r account on how and why the attack was done, and message on Go Daddy Support site.
