New phishing email tries to get Go Daddy customers to give away account details.
I received a phishing email today that I haven’t seen before.
Titled “Notice about GODADDY account activation”, it won’t fool most internet users. But it could certainly dupe some people.
The message reads:
Dear Godaddy User:
This notification is generated automatically as a service to you because you subscribe to DomainAlert.
Because of the Comprehensive upgrade of the website system, please log in and re-activate your account.
Official Go Daddy communications always include your customer number.
The phishing email sends users to WorkGodaddy.com, which has a whois record indicating the owner is in China.
[Update: Go Daddy shut down this phishing attempt. But keep in mind it’s easy for someone to change the URL and try it again. Be careful.]
