Hello all, I've had my shop open for a couple of weeks and been keeping an eye on the Google Search Console to see how many of my pages are being indexed. All seemed well and then last Tuesday (26...

Hi Alice14, I don't think they do have access to our Godaddy accounts (I hope!). Finding the unused subdomains doesn't seem to be difficult, I saw that there are even youtube videos showing people how to do it!! I don't know the details but it doesn'...
Hi Alice14, that's great news, glad you managed to get it sorted out.
Hello Fcbeautyco, The solution for me was to delete the ftp subdomain DNS file in Godaddy which the malicious site was using; this took down their store. I still don't really know how it happened but I do not think my security was breached on Shopify...
Hi Alice14, sorry to hear that this is happening to you too. Scary isn't it? As the Indonesian gambling site didn't use your ftp subdomain (ftp.yourshop.com) then removing your ftp file from your DNS records will not do anything. It's still a good th...
I haven't had any more updates from Shopify. I had a ticket open and was in conversation with one of their team about it; their last reply to me said that they were forwarding the matter to the relevant teams and that they were unable to interfere wi...
Sorry to hear this happened to you too. Out of interest, where did they point your hijacked subdomains to, was it an Indonesian gambling site too? I have a theory that they are hijacking subdomains so that their IP address is showing as not in Indone...
I've been talking to people on the Shopify forum and on the Google Search Central Community and there are lots of us having the same problem. It seems to be with people using Godaddy and Shopify and it's when you have an unused DNS file in Godaddy (s...
Sorry this is happening to you too. When you go into Google Search Console, is that subdomain listed or is it only your root domain that you can see? If it's not listed then click on 'ADD PROPERTY' and add the exact subdomain. Once you have done this...
Hi, Did you get this sorted out because the same thing happened to me a week ago. Someone hijacked a subdomain of my domain name, which was not in use. This also went to an Indonesian gaming store on Shopify. I took their site down myself by deleting...
Thank you for all your help so far, Ryan.I have just found the rogue owner of the ftp. address in google console. I have removed them but it says that they can just add themselves back again unless I remove a html tag from my homepage. Do you have an...
Yes, I did get an email from google with the No.2 I do not recognize. I went to search console and there is no record of any other user/owner being added.The problem is that it is not my domain name, it is my domain name with ftp. in front of it. Goo...
I am the owner of the store and there are no staff members. I've checked in Shopify admin and no one else has been added. I've had no emails from Shopify to say that I've had a log in from an unknown device.I do not have a Partner Dashboard account.T...
Yes, I still have access. How do I remove them?
Thank you Ryan, I've done that.Does anyone know what the ftp. prefix is? Do  I own that? Should I be worried that I am being hacked?
I received this email from Google this morning:New owner for https://ftp.(my domain name)To owner of (my domain name),Google has identified that (an email address) has been added as an owner of https://ftp.(my domain name)Property owners can change c...
