GoDaddy notified some of its customers that an unauthorized party used their web hosting account credentials to connect to their hosting account via SSH.

The security incident that took place on October 19, 2019, was discovered on April 23, 2020, after the company's security team discovered an altered SSH file in GoDaddy's hosting environment and suspicious activity on a subset of GoDaddy's servers.

GoDaddy is the world’s largest domain registrar and a web hosting company that provides services to roughly 19 million customers around the world.
