Summary (IA Generated)

Yesterday, security researcher KrebsOnSecurity reported that several cryptocurrency platforms hosted by popular hosting provider Godaddy have been attacked over the past week.

Liquid CEO Mike Kayamori said GoDaddy incorrectly transferred control of the account and domain to a malicious actor.

Kayamori added that the move allowed a malicious actor to change DNS records and thus, take control of a number of internal email accounts.

The second victim was cryptocurrency mining service NiceHash, which on November 18 discovered that some of the settings for its domain registration records at GoDaddy were changed without authorization, briefly redirecting email and web traffic for the site.
