Go Daddy Hit with DoS
Go Daddy was hit by "significant and sustained" distributed denial of service attacks on Sunday morning not glitches caused by the switch to daylight saving time, as the Internet Storm Center had postulated over the weekend.
Go Daddy Chief Information Security Officer Neil Warner issued a statement saying that the DDoS attacks caused intermittent service disruptions to services included shared hosting and e-mail.
Warner said in the release that Go Daddy's Internet Security and Network teams "immediately invoked counter-measures to respond to these large scale, sophisticated attacks," managing to contain the attack after 4 to 5 hours. Security Watch - Exploits and Attacks - Go Daddy Hit with DoS, Not DST
