  1. One site I do have running on GoDaddy (unfortunately) was running WordPress 2.9.2 when it got hacked the other day.


  2. They’re file permissions issues… that’s why the pharma is hitting 2.9.2 latest… only servers with bad permissions are getting hacked… funny that none of my 60+ are getting hacked… why? because I don’t use crap hosting from netsol or godaddy. mt grid is a diff thing but sort of similar.


  3. Those hosting guys are all point at WordPress. It happens that many account on their insecure servers use WordPress as a CMS. This is bad that are kicking the blame elsewhere.


  4. I just found your site. I am concerned about the many rumors flying about with regard to Go Daddy. It is true that all the hosts blame Word Press or the user when their servers gum up. By the way do you like your commenting system. I am wanting to install AJAX EDIT COMMENTS on my site as my visitors and contributors are always complaining about not being able to edit their comments. To date I haven’t been able to find a good plug-in although the Ajax looks good. Any help is appreciated as some of these things work for about ten minutes and some slow down my site.


  5. My site which was also hosted on Godaddy, got hacked, it was being redirected to some other site.
    I have uninstalled it and waiting to fix it.


  6. I talked with GoDaddy who assured me it wasn’t their servers, that it was WP. Yet, every php file on my (old) hosting account w/ them was hacked, WP and non-WP files. The WP install on there was the latest version and I have such complicated passwords even I can’t remember them.

    The kicker? Got hacked 5/7/10, cleaned up everything (including a fresh install of WP), changed all passwords (including ftp passwords), and got hacked again today at 4:30 central time!

    Sure GoDaddy, it’s not your servers at all…

    Just one more reason I moved to MT.
