WordPress Hosting customers have received an email from GoDaddy alerting them to a security breach. If you have a WordPress website and you’re using GoDaddy hosting it may not be their specialized WordPress Hosting plan, so you will not receive the email. So take a deep breath and update passwords NOW. Why now? Because if the breach exposed your passwords to a hacker, a later update will be too late!
Which passwords to update? Just assume all your passwords were exposed and change them.
- Your GoDaddy account password.
- Your WordPress login password
- Any other user’s WordPress login password
- Your FTP password
