GoDaddy tricked into helping hackers breach crypto services

Nov 22, 2020 15:22 IST

Domain registrar and web hosting company GoDaddy employees were tricked into handing ownership or control of multiple cryptocurrency services’ web domains to fraudsters, KrebsOnSecurity said. This reportedly allowed the hackers to redirect email and web traffic for several cryptocurrency trading platforms over the last week. It’s not certain how many companies fell victim to the hack, but Liquid.com and NiceHash reported issues. This comes roughly a year after GoDaddy confirmed 28,000 customers’ hosting accounts had been breached.
