+ - DNS Records Of Go Daddy Sites Hacked To Serve Up Ransomware

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Cybercriminals have managed to alter the DNS records of some Go Daddy hosted websites. As a result, users visiting these pages are being infected with ransomware. For the uninitiated, ransomware is a very profitable type of threat which restricts access to the computer it infects, spamming the user with prompts that demand a ransom paid for functionality to be reinstated. Access is limited either by encryption or locking the system."
