After suspicious activity yesterday, Moniker asks users to reset passwords
Company says it has no evidence that domain names were stolen.
Domain name registrar Moniker discovered suspicious activity on its network, and as a precaution is asking all account holders to reset their passwords today. The suspicious activity occurred yesterday.
There’s no notice on the site about the password change requirement, and if you try to log in you’ll just get a message that your password is invalid. However, the company sent an email to all account holders informing them of the issue.
The company states that it is unaware of any domains being lost or transferred out of Moniker by the perpetrators. There’s also no evidence that any confidential or credit card information has been compromised.
These types of issues are becoming commonplace, and it’s one more reason for domain registrars to add additional layers of protection, such as two-factor authentication, to accounts.
