Was Dynadot hacked?


Yesterday, June 15th, Dynadot had some downtime on its website. They also asked all customers to reset their passwords.

Was Dynadot hacked? Dynadot is not yet sure what has happened and they are working with cyber security experts.

This incident only comes a few days after this blog post by Dynadot: “The Dynadot Difference: Trust, Transparency, & Stability“.

Something feels odd here or maybe it is just me…

The only thing I can say is that Dynadot support has been a lot less than stellar lately.

Here is what Dynadot announced today:

“Yesterday, during one of our routine security checks, our system noticed irregular activity. Our team followed protocol and took down our website to secure all accounts and domains while they investigated. Out of abundance of caution, we also required all customers to reset their passwords for an extra layer of security. Once the team investigated and determined there was not a threat we brought our website back online. We understand that this was extremely inconvenient but account security is a top priority at Dynadot.

Moving forward, we have partnered with cyber security experts to help us further investigate and strengthen our cyber security protection. At this time we do not have any additional information on the incident as we are still investigating. We will notify our customers if any noteworthy information comes to light during our investigation.”
