Submission + - GoDaddy wants your root password (sucuri.net)

Johnny Fusion writes: "The writer of the Securi Security Blog had a an alarming awakening when a honeypot on port 22 on a GoDaddy hosted VPS recorded login attempts using his GoDaddy username and password and even an attempt to login as root. It turns out the attempt was actually from within GoDaddy's network. Before he could "alert" GoDaddy about the security breach, he got an email from GoDaddy Demanding his root login credentials.

There is an update where GoDaddy explains itself and says they will change policy."
