GoDaddy.com Inc,... says it “quickly” removed malicious software code
that had infected approximately 445 of its clients’ web sites last
week....

Hackers had used the usernames and passwords of Go Daddy account
holders to enter the protected areas of their web sites, then
installed software code that redirected visitors to a fraudulent web
site designed to capture consumer account information...

GoDaddy did not say how many of the infected sites were retail sites.
