What Happened With Godaddy
Tuesday, September 11, 2012

As many of you know (some through unfortunate first-hand experience), there was a hacking attack on on 9/10/12. Below are some things you may want to know about the issue:

The Good:

If you are using a company like AI Software for your web services, your information is 100% safe - as our web hosting services are separate from domains (GoDaddy). Furthermore, GoDaddy is a VERY strong and reputable company and you can count on the fact that they are taking measures to prevent this type of thing from happening in the future.

The Bad:

Hundreds of thousands of websites (if not more) experienced 4-5 hours of down time yesterday and countless hours of troubleshooting by IT companies like AI Software were misspent due to this issue. [However, even if your website was down the entire day, that only accounts for .274% downtime total on the year.]

The Ugly:

Until World of Warcraft removes level caps, we (collectively) can expect that hackers will continue to try and disrupt Internet productivity.
