According to a Nov. 21 report by popular cybercrime blog KrebsOnSecurity, the domains of multiple cryptocurrency services have been attacked by hackers who pulled off a successful social engineering attack on web hosting company GoDaddy last week. 

Cryptocurrency exchange Liquid, hash power broker NiceHash, and digital payment platform Wirex and a few other names had their DNS records changed by the fraudsters.

Here’s how hackers pulled this off 

On Nov. 13, multiple GoDaddy employees were deceived into handing control over the domains of the aforementioned cryptocurrency platforms to malicious actors.
