Well, this isn't great. Probably not impacting people here, but still newsworthy.

In disclosures to the Securities and Exchange Commission, web registrar and hosting company GoDaddy has revealed that it discovered it had been hacked. The company says that it discovered an “unauthorized third party” had gained access to its Managed WordPress hosting environment. Anything up to 1.2 million users have seen their email address and customer number exposed, as well as admin passwords for both WordPress sites hosted on the platform, plus passwords for sFTPs, databases and SSL private keys.

That is not good for users and godaddy, honestly I don't know when what happened but 2 weeks ago, when I visit GoDaddy website then my ip address was blocked for a few hours, perhaps they got security issue that time.

It's also worth noting that all of GoDaddy's Reseller Partners who use the same platform and sell managed WordPress hosting, etc. are hit with the same problem. That includes Media Temple, Heart Internet, Host Europe, tsoHost, Domain Factory, 123Reg

I've been a GoDaddy customer for years, and I'm shocked to hear about this. (I'm also concerned about the security of my account.) This is such a huge breach that I just can't recommend you do business with them. I'm going to be moving my hosting to someone else as soon as possible.
