Millions of websites that are hosted by GoDaddy were down for several hours yesterday, and the company has come forward with an explanation. It was suspected that a DDoS attack was responsible, but GoDaddy CEO Scott Wagner stated, "We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables." During the outage there was no risk of compromise of any customer data, and it was merely an access problem.
