Universal TOS Phishing Attempt from GoDaddy!! Not really.

Email spam filters have gotten pretty good at catching phishing attempts. Most of the time, phishing emails are caught and or blocked by email providers and never even seen by the intended recipient. In some cases, the emails make it to the user’s inbox but are marked as spam / junk. This helps prevent phishing, but it’s not foolproof, and phishing or spearphishing are not always obvious.

I want to share a spoof GoDaddy email that seems to be making the rounds. From what I can gather, this is a spoofed email phishing attempt that is NOT from GoDaddy despite the appearance of being a GoDaddy. People who visit the link and enter their GoDaddy account information are at a major risk to have their GoDaddy account hacked.

GoDaddy customers (and customers of other registrars for that matter) should have two factor authentication turned on to help secure their account. GoDaddy now allows customers to use a YubiKey for 2 factor authentication, and other registrars also have 2FA options.
