The Go Daddy outage Monday that saw extensive service interruptions to its webhosting operations was not caused by hackers or other “external influences” the company said, but rather “due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables.”
The intermittent service outages started shortly after 10:00 US Pacific Time and services were fully restored by 16:00.
Once Go Daddy identified the issues causing the problems, they then advise they took corrective actions to restore services and have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
They also advise that at no time was any customer data at risk or were any of their systems compromised.
There were claims from Anonymous through the Twitter handles @AnonymousOwn2r and @AnonymousOwn3r, had caused the outage with a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS).
Go Daddy manages around five million web hosting accounts but there is no information as to how many were affected.
