GoDaddy Suffers Multi-Year Cyber Attack Resulting in Theft of Source Code


GoDaddy has been subjected to a system breach that appears to have been going on for years. The hackers stole the company's source code and installed malware on its servers, leaving its customers vulnerable to malware.

Recent GoDaddy Breach

The web hosting company, which has 20 million customers globally, found out about the security breach with its cPanel shared hosting environment back in December 2022. Customers claimed that their sites were used to intermittently redirect to different domains.

GoDaddy has reason to believe that the hackers breached their systems for several years now, saying that the incidents were part of a multi-year campaign by a sophisticated group of hackers. The attackers installed malware that led to the company's source code being stolen.
