Understood but USA Today says it was about 1800 sites so of the millions they host the odds of it being yours are very remote. Go buy a lottery ticket instead.

I’ve got a friend with a reseller account with GD and he has several 1000 sites down and that many dns issues. !800 won’t even begin to be a decent number for him.
According to what we’re seeing here in the office it could be causing many 1000’s of issues with sites, resellers, domain servers, dns issues, etc.
It’s a serious outage for them and could happen to any hosting company and I certainly hope they can resolve the issue soon.
I’m sure it’s causing 1000’s of business sites to be losing a lot of money right now.
We don’t use GD but we are watching their updates and wish them well to get this attack stopped and their severs back online for their customers.
