Popular web services site GoDaddy has experienced a widespread outage today, causing countless sites around the web to cease functioning.

A member of hacker collective Anonymous has claimed responsibility for the outage, and they said GoDaddy’s DNS servers were all taken offline. “I’m taking godaddy down bacause well i’d like to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that i can not talk now,” Anonymous Own3r wrote on Twitter.

Anonymous Own3r has expressly said this is not an attack made on Anonymous’ behalf, and it is just from this one member.
