Warning.. My hosting account got hacked and a bunch of email accounts added

Hey everyone,

Just a warning and wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I logged into my hosting account tonight to do some routine maintenance on some email accounts (regular domain email accounts, not Workspace). There were about 20 email accounts that I did not create!! These accounts were tied to all the various domains I own. I took a look at a couple of the accounts to see if there was any activity and couldn't see anything .. nothing sent and nothing received (although I know that doesn't guarantee anything). I changed my password, deleted all the rogue accounts and looked through File Manager for anything that didn't belong.

Anyone else have this happen? Random hacker looking to create bogus email addresses for spambots? Thoughts?

If you do believe your account has been accessed by others without your consent and you believe it could be a threat in anyway called Go Daddy support. They'll easiley fix this problem
