One person claiming credit for massive Go Daddy outage

http://j.mp/S4wEcc  (Atlantic Wire)

    If the website you're trying to access won't load, chances are it's a
    GoDaddy joint that's been taken offline in a massive hack for which
    one person is claiming responsibility. The domain registrar
    acknowledged in a tweet that it was offline on Monday, and The Next
    Web reported the site's DNS servers had been disabled as well, "which
    means GoDaddy hosted e-mail accounts are down as well, and lots more."
    GoDaddy hosted more than 45 million domain names as of 2010, according
    to DomainSherpa. Someone tweeting with the handle @AnonymousOwn3r
    claimed responsibility for the attack on Monday, saying in a tweet
    that he or she had taken down GoDaddy's servers "bacause well i'd like
    to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that i can
    not talk now."
