Pretty Obvious That Healthcare.gov, i.e., ‘ObamaCare’ [aka Affordable Care Act], Web System Is BEING HACKED; Denial Of Service (DoS) Attacks.

Given my 40 years in IT I kind of suspected that this would happen.
Much easier than blocking funding for ObamaCare.
Get a bunch of hackers, if necessary from overseas, to hack the system and flood it with ‘Denial of Service’ (DoS) attacks. We have had DoS attacks on other system.
This was SO, SO predictable. They had to have known.
Did YOU KNOW that NASA’s $11 Million balloon-based mission (BRRISON) to study fast approaching Comet ISON failed this weekend because they couldn’t get the damn telescope to come out of its casing! Yep, $11 million down the drain. Not a single picture. Incompetence.

Over the last 10 days or so I have noticed 5 to 6 (on average) search queries a day on: “GoDaddy e-mail slow“.
Yes, we had noticed that it was a bit sluggish, but it was only a few minutes ago that it really became an issue for me. Yesterday or day before Deanna complained that her GoDaddy e-mail was so slow that it might as well be down. But, she managed to get what she wanted done.
This morning I encountered some major problems. It was definitely down for a few minutes. Plus it is slow — particularly when it comes to displaying e-mails and logging in.
From my decade and more of experience with GoDaddy e-mail this could be either due to one of two things: capacity problems on the server (processing or bandwidth) OR GoDaddy is yet again being subjected to a ‘Denial of Service‘ (DoS) attack that is slowing everything down. Knowing GoDaddy (as I do) I am fairly sure that they are aware of this problem and will fix it in the next couple of weeks. I will, of course, he monitoring it.
So, this is just a heads up. Best of luck. I know how frustrating this can be.
