Not much shocks me anymore, but my friend Christine Cobb gave me a link to a video on YouTube where a Godaddy user shares his screen. His “new” Godaddy account is either hacked, merged, glitch-y or I have no clue what happened!
Warning: Video has some vulgar text. And the video may make you a bit dizzy, but watch it in it's entirety to see how messed up his account is:
Be sure to read the author's (Noun Verber) description on YouTube for more details here.
Think about what this user could have done to the other websites or account information. And what about his account information? Where is it? Who has it? Yikes! In my opinion, this is a major security breach.
WordPress Security Tip:
Never host your website at the same place you register your domain. Think about it. If your account gets compromised they can mess with your domain, emails AND your website files and database!
