Wednesday WTF #2: ICANN Domains Hijacked
On June 27 New York Times reported that Turkish Hackers ‘hijacked’ a few of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) domain names. Last Thursday (July 3) ICANN confirmed these attacks mentioning that social hacking was partially involved. It should not be possible that the company in charge of assigning IP address and domain names loses, even temporarily, control of their domain names? Of course they are probably constantly under attack, nonetheless wtf?
