GoDaddy, a well-known web hosting company, disclosed a multi-year sophisticated security breach that allowed unknown cyber hackers to install malware and steal a source code.

During the 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), GoDaddy admitted that the attack in December 2022 was connected to other security breaches they faced in March 2020 and November 2021. The attack in 2020 compromised the hosting login credentials of about 28000 GoDaddy's customers and some of their employees' personal data.
