Vishing scam targets GoDaddy employees

11/18/2020

A security incident at GoDaddy, an Internet domain and hosting registrar, has compromised some cryptocurrency services such as Liquid and NiceHash.

The cyberattack, using vishing techniques against GoDaddy's employees, allowed unauthorised access that involved controlling GoDaddy's domain and account settings temporarily, which, in turn, allowed to make unauthorised changes, deny access to websites and access to sensitive customer data.

In Liquid's case, the information compromised could include: emails, names, addresses, encrypted passwords and personal documentation. In the case of NiceHash, no data violation was recorded.

At present, GoDaddy has already reported that all the problems have been resolved.
