Several of our company’s users have had their email accounts locked by GoDaddy’s filter due to their “Too Many Incorrect Login Attempts” policy, as a result of a phishing assault. Although I appreciate their concern for our protection, the issue has been traced (after much effort) to issues in the autodiscover phase, in which the Autodiscover fails because Godaddy has flagged the User’s account for too many incorrect logins. This causes autodiscover to fail, and Outlook to fail as a result.
The same user (who received no alert or other signs of a problem) can still access their email using a browser through the web portal. This implies that the security given is minimal or non-existent, but the problems that result are immense.
Taking this a step further, we found that some of the “incorrect logins” were triggered by old equipment on which the User(s) already had an email address but had never been upgraded to their new password. Stuff like the iPhone’s iMail service

Godaddy domain setup and domain settings page overview

There was a “incursion at GoDaddy that relied on tricking employees into transferring ownership and/or influence over targeted domains to fraudsters,” according to a report published earlier today on Krebs on Defense, a prominent and well-sourced cybersecurity blog. This social engineering attack targeted the Liquid.com domain name, which is owned and used by Liquid, a cryptocurrency business. According to Krebs, other cryptocurrency sites may have been targeted as well.
Prior to reading this article, I read a blog post on the Liquid corporate blog written by Liquid CEO Mike Kayamori about a “security incident” involving the company’s domain name. “On the 13th of November 2020, a domain hosting provider “GoDaddy” that manages one of our core domain names incorrectly transferred ownership of the account and domain to a malicious actor,” Kayamori wrote in the blog post. As a result, the actor was able to change DNS records and gain access to a variety of internal email accounts. The malicious attacker was finally able to hack our infrastructure and gain access to document storage.”

The hack is the company’s new effort to mislead workers into passing ownership and/or control of targeted domains to criminals. In March, attackers took possession of at least a half-dozen domain names, including transaction brokering platform escrow.com, thanks to a voice phishing scheme targeting GoDaddy support employees.
In a blog post, Liquid CEO Mike Kayamori claimed that “a domain hosting company ‘GoDaddy’ that manages one of our core domain names improperly transferred ownership of the account and domain to a malicious actor.” “As a result, the actor was able to change DNS records and gain access to a variety of internal email accounts. The malicious attacker was finally able to hack our infrastructure and gain access to document storage.”
NiceHash, a cryptocurrency mining service, discovered that some of the settings for its domain registration records at GoDaddy had been updated without permission in the early morning hours of Nov. 18 Central European Time (CET), briefly redirecting email and web traffic for the platform. NiceHash put a 24-hour hold on all customer funds until it could check that its domain settings had been restored to their original state.

I’m setting up a Windows 10 laptop for a new user at home. She uses a GoDaddy-hosted Office 365 account. When I first turned on the computer, it asked for user information, which I entered for her Office365 account. It seemed to work well, but it said it couldn’t log the user in or check the username/password at the last screen until the usual Win10 login screen appeared. I’m not sure what went wrong. I can’t even get into the device to establish a local account anymore. Is it already too late for me to do a factory reset on this device?
That’s exactly what I did, a factory reset. I followed the steps and got the same result. I’m not sure what’s going on there. As a result, I created a local admin account for her and then added her Office365 account to it.
