On GoDaddy, you can manage your website or domain yourself, and this time hackers have attacked it. After a preliminary investigation, the company says that the reason for the data leak is a compromised password of an unauthorized user’s system, with the help of which a third party got access to sensitive information.

The company says that the original WordPress admin passwords given to the customers while creating the WordPress account have also been exposed. The sFTP credentials that customers use for file transfer, along with the WordPress username and password, have also been leaked.

GoDaddy reported that WordPress passwords had been reset, and new SSL certificates were also being issued. The company has also confirmed that all affected customers are being contacted directly, and investigation is on.
