Chinese hackers steal more domains from GoDaddy account

After a seemingly short pause, the Chinese hackers that infiltrate GoDaddy accounts using phishing emails hit again.

This time, four three character domains were stolen from an account of a DNForum domain investor, who is not a rookie.

The domains are 5nk.com, 5bv.com, 5nu.com, and 5bk.com.

These stolen domains were “deleted” from the owner’s GoDaddy account and were moved to the usual suspect, Chinese domain registrar Ename, where they are being offered for sale.

Ename maintains a domain selling marketplace where domains of dubious ownership are often peddled at low prices. Ename has been very hard to deal with, across several cases of domain theft.

The domain owner has posted the following picture depicting his account at GoDaddy, where the domains were recently renewed.

Update: As of 1/6/2015 these domains appear to have been returned to their rightful owner.
