    Not sure if anyone is aware of this.

    I just learned this today.... I logged in to my GoDaddy account....

    AND LO AND BEHOLD!!!

    Godaddy offers me domain names for sale WITH MY PASSWORD IN THEM.

    WTF?!?

    To give you an idea...

    If my password were ABCeasyas123

    GoDaddy offered me www.as123.com for purchase.

    This is a HUGE security risk... if anyone were behind me and knew that GoDaddy does this, they would have had the last 5 characters of my password right then. In my case, the last 5 characters give away enough of my password that someone in the know could guess the rest.

    That's ot to mention:
    1. GoDaddy is PROCESSING your unencrypted password
    2. They may also STORE our passwords unencrypted
    3. They then transmit your password fragment and account number OVER AN INSECURE HTTP CONNECTION.


    Personally, I think ICANN should yank their certification as a registrar. This is total bull****.
