According to the company, on September 6th, an unnamed hacker gained access to the accounts of 1.2 million GoDaddy customers. However, GoDaddy’s security team was able to notice the data compromise on November 17th.
As a result of this data breach, the customers’ email addresses and customer numbers are exposed, along with the original admin passwords of the users who were generated at the time of WordPress’s first installation. Additionally, some clients’ SSL private keys have been compromised.
Going forward, GoDaddy has said that they will issue new SSL certificates to users and change their passwords as a preventative precaution against assault.
