GoDaddy was claiming that this wave of Wordpress hacks was due to clients not upgrading without even bothering to really look at the clients sites. The hosting control panel can only report what was installed via the hosting control panel itself. If a client pushes the button to upgrade Wordpress from within the Wordpress admin section then the hosting control panel will never know.
As amazing as it seems, apparently the entire GoDaddy technical support team is ignorant of this fact. That’s right… the “World’s largest Hosting Provider” doesn’t understand the very basics of how the world’s largest blogging platform works.”—"Hosting With GoDaddy? Might Want To Rethink That Decision." Michael VanDeMar
