GoDaddy has explained that the hack of a Twitter account happened due to one of their employees being tricked by a hacker who employed a social engineering attack.
“Our review of the situation reveals that the hacker was already in possession of a large portion of the customer information needed to access the account at the time he contacted GoDaddy,” the company said in a statement on its website. “The hacker then socially engineered an employee to provide the remaining information needed to access the customer account.”
