Web host giant GoDaddy admits hacker compromised nearly 30,000 accounts.

  • GoDaddy says a hacker “tampered with the SSH file” on its servers which lead to the breech of 28,000 account credentials.
  • The intrusion occurred last month.
  • SSH is a widely used protocol that lets website owners remotely connect to their webservers.
  • GoDaddy spokesman Nick Fuller said, “We immediately reset these usernames and passwords, removed the offending SSH file from our platform, and have no indication the threat actor used our customers’ credentials or modified any customer hosting account.”
