Hackers Shut Down Monrovia Blog

The infamous "Anonymous" hacking group claimed responsibility for taking down a popular web hosting service that hosts local blog 'Monrovia Now.'

A group of hackers shut down a popular web hosting service Monday, taking down local blog Monrovia Now in the process, the blog's creator said.

Blogger Brad Haugaard wrote Monday that the attack launched by hacking group "Anonymous" disabled his blog indirectly when it shut down the hosting service GoDaddy.com. Monrovia Now was operational again as of 4 p.m. Monday.

CBS reports that the hacking of GoDaddy.com resulted in millions of websites being shut down.

It was said that the person claiming responsibility said they had no affiliation with the anonymous group. Did that change? http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/09/10/every-godaddy-registered-site-temporarily-offline/

According to the head of CIO, though Anonymous2 claimed credit for the outage, it was corrupted router tables that caused the network to fail. http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/262142/godaddy_blames_outage_on_corrupted_router_tables.html and http://www.cio-today.com/news/GoDaddy-Says-Outage-Was-Malfunction/story.xhtml?story_id=023000SK6J1R&full_skip=1
