The website hosting arm of GoDaddy recently announced a data breach of credentials affecting 1.2 million of their WordPress sites.

Coverage has been everywhere, but here are some links:

TechCrunch, WordFence, and the SEC.

Please note, this does not affect your WordPress sites hosted with CU*Answers Web Services.  This only affects certain web sites hosted at GoDaddy.

While CU*Answers Web Services does use GoDaddy for some domain name registrations, this incident did not affect the registrar functions, only their web hosting business.

GoDaddy said it’s reset customer WordPress passwords and private keys, and is in the process of issuing new SSL certificates.
