GoDaddy hacking admission

Way back when (like, over 4 years ago now), I wrote up a blog post (GoDaddy shared Windows hosting compromised) about an issue I was seeing when this site was hosted on GoDaddy about a PHP hack. I’ve helped several people who were hit by the same hack, showing how they could monitor for it and clean it up if they had the same issue. Since then, I’ve moved this site over to Azure where, to be blunt, security is tighter.

Imagine my surprise then when I read this article on Ars Technica this weekend: GoDaddy says a multi-year breach hijacked customer websites and accounts.

How glad I am that I no longer use GoDaddy for my website hosting…
