GoDaddy reported today Tuesday [PDF] a violation committed in early October in early California, alleging that an unauthorized person was able to gain access to SSH accounts used in their hosting environment.
"We have no evidence that files have been added or modified to your account," the company told its customers, failing to provide further details.
"The unauthorized person has been excluded from our systems and we are continuing to investigate the potential impact on our environment."
The company said it had reset the passwords and would provide affected customers with a one-year free security and malware removal service.
"These services run automatic scans on your site to identify and alert you to potential security vulnerabilities," he said.
"With this service, if a problem arises, there is a special way to contact our security team who will be there for help."
The company reported net income of $ 138,4 million in February, out of a total revenue of $ 2,99 billion. GoDaddy had 19,3 million customers at the end of 2019.
In the fourth quarter, the company reported revenue of $ 780 million, $ 352 million from domains, $ 293 million from web hosting and $ 135 million from business applications.
It is therefore quite natural that such a company is a very tempting target for malicious users.
From iGuRu.gr we do not recommend such companies for hosting your websites, and our goal in the near future is to deal more extensively with the issue of hosting and the services they deserve.
