My admin page is totally out of whack and I’m not even sure if this post will get published.

Apparently, a multitude of WordPress blogs that host with Go Daddy were affected.

I spoke to Go Daddy earlier today about the problem and the guy I spoke to acted as if he had no idea what I was talking about, but said they would do a scan on my site to see if there was a problem.

He said the scan did not pinpoint anything, so there must not be a problem. On their end. But he also advised me to change my password, so maybe he knew something was up.

After hanging up with him, I came across this site that revealed an undetermined amount of sites were hacked.

I then tweeted this link to Go Daddy and they responded that they are aware of the problem and are working on it.
