I read yesterday that GoDaddy has been hacked and millions of websites hosted by the company have not been accessible. Someone on Twitter has claimed responsibility. I do not have a website hosted with GoDaddy but this is not something I wish happen to any webmaster.
I can only hope this is a friendly hacker and he did it only to serve as a painful warning to the company that they are not secure enough and that no actual damage has been caused to the millions of accounts and websites under GoDaddy’s administration.
At the same time, I hope other players in the industry would take this warning seriously and beef up the security of their own websites.
