Breached – GoDaddy Managed WordPress

22 Nov 2021

GoDaddy announced this morning that they have been breached. GoDaddy appears to have stored passwords in plaintext, or in a format that could be reversed back into plaintext, which is not an industry best practice. 

According to GoDaddy's own SEC filing: "For active customers, sFTP and database usernames and passwords were exposed."

The attacker had access to GoDaddy's systems for over two months before they were discovered.
