Today I discovered the video book trailer I added (though a link to my YouTube site) into my website was changed to an unrelated video about nature photography. As I am certain I had no hand in this, it is is very concerning. It means someone highjacked the way to get into and change my site. I thought GoDaddy Website + Marketing was very secure. I changed it back to the correct book trailer (mine!) but now I'm concerned about the integrity of my and all sites on this platform.
Once a video plays, the next video or a screen showing other video options may display. Could that be what happened?
I don't know why someone would hi-jack or hack a website to put up a nature video. Usually when that level of effort is put in it's for nefarious reasons. 😉
One thing for sure, whenever you have security concerns, be sure to immediately change your password.
Hacking happens all the time. And it is something to be concerned about -- but there are no fail-safes. So all you can do is what is in your control to control. One of which is having crazy long and complicated passwords to your accounts. 😉
No, the setting does NOT go on to the next video. Now I keep checking for this not happening again daily. The other video, BTW, was a promotion for a photographer and his services
"Be sure to change your passwords too, okay?"
Yes, of course. Already done👍
I can't click on "accept the solution," though, as we don't know what occurred. If anyone has a better idea why this happened, I would like to know. I do hope it isn't common
