I'm not surprised Go-Daddy went in the direction of "internal network events
that corrupted router data tables". It is definitely the lesser of the two
evils. To come out and admit they were hacked or experienced a DDOS would
make Customers feel their information on Go-Daddy servers was potentially
compromised. Hence the CEO's statement, " At no time was any customer data
at risk or were any of our systems compromised."

Unless there's a government investigation, which is doubtful, none of us
will really ever know what truly happened.

Frankly, "we were ddos'd" is a much better sell than "we screwed up our
internal systems horribly because we're idiots.". Surprised they went this
direction.
