Godaddy.comWell, there are lots of news about GoDaddy.com being down, now more than 4 hours, but the question is: How Godaddy.com will compensate the losses?!
People hosting their websites on Godaddy.com servers, and its resellers, lost lots of money in this outage.
“Over 50 local Myrtle Beach hotels that use GoDaddy services through Fuel Interactive could be impacted by as much as $30,000 an hour, collectively, for each hour the sites are down.” says Wmbfnews. (1)

 

On the other hand, Disa Johnson says that Godaddy didn’t resolve the issue by themselves. It was the hacker who “had a heart” and let go!!!! (2)
How can making troubles for others be called “having a heart”??
Just search about this outage on Google […]

Lunarpages, my “current” and might become “ex” webhosting company, shut down Gibni.com yesterday without any prior notice, saying they’ve taken an emergency action, as the “index.php” script in my wordpress root was using huge server resources, and could cause a server crash.

First problem is, not only they changed the “index.php” permissions to “000”  (no read permissions) but they took ownership of the file, so neither I could make any changes to the file, nor analyze it for troubleshooting.

About Conficker:

On October 23, 2008, Microsoft released a critical security update, MS08-067, to resolve a vulnerability in the Server service of Windows that, at the time of release, was facing targeted, limited attack. The vulnerability could allow an anonymous attacker to successfully take full control of a vulnerable system through a network-based attack, the sort of vectors typically associated with network “worms.” Since the release of MS08-067, the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) has identified two variants of Win32/Conficker in the wild to date:
