Some GoDaddy Sites Hacked




 

 

 

 

The Security Site Sophos.com has reported that some sites hosted at GoDaddy have been hacked with "ramsomware."  Users are sent to a page telling them that their computer has been locked and that they need to pay a ranson to unlock the computer.  Frasier Howard notes that "an animated GIF in this lock page to mimic the video from the user's webcam! This sort of attention to detail is what helps convince many users that the warning is legitimate."

See the full article for all of the details.
