Default Speak of the devil

Just received this e-mail today:

Earlier this week, the Go Daddy Information Security Team detected suspicious activity within our hosting environment. The investigation concluded someone was targeting customers' hashed FTP (Web hosting) credentials. The activity was stopped and we continue to monitor the situation.

Your Web hosting account for was NOT impacted. (R U SURE?)
As a precaution, however, we have reset your FTP password.

If you use a content management system to manage your content, no further action is required.

If you do use FTP to manage your website, you will need to change your password before reconnecting. For instructions on how to change your FTP password, see our article, Resetting Your Hosting Account Password (FTP Password). (Beat you to it)

If you have any questions, please call our live, 24/7 customer support at 480-505-8877.
