Submission + - GoDaddy pulls site after MySpace complains

gellenburg writes: "From Declan McCullagh and CNet:



MySpace demanded that GoDaddy pull the plug on Seclists.org, which hosts some 250,000 pages of mailing list archives and other resources, because a list of thousands of MySpace usernames and passwords was archived on the site. GoDaddy claims its customers own about 18 million domains.

GoDaddy complied. In a move that Seclists.org owner Fyodor Vaskovich said happened with no prior notice, the company deleted his domain name — causing his site to be effectively unreachable for about seven hours on Wednesday until he found out what was happening and removed the password list.
