panix.com recovery in progress

  • From: Henry Yen
  • Date: Sun Jan 16 18:04:45 2005

The latest shell host motd's:

. Hijack recovery underway (elr) Sun Jan 16 17:43:28 2005
. 
.    Recovery is underway from the panix.com domain hijack.
.    
.    The root name servers now have the correct information, as does the
.    WHOIS registry.  Portions of the Internet will still not be able to
.    see panix.com until their name servers expire the false data.  More
.    info soon.
.    
. panix.net status update (elr) Sun Jan 16 16:06:41 2005
. 
.    As some of our customers have noticed, there have been a few problems
.    with using panix.net as a substitute for panix.com.  We've fixed most
.    of them:
.    
.    * if you change your return address to username@panix.net, it now works.
.    Previously, it was getting re-written back to username@panix.com.  Customers
.    may need to do this to send mail to domains that use "Sender Address
.    Verifcation" since the fake panix.com mail servers don't seem to be
.    accepting mail right now.
.    
.    * The URL "http://www.panix.net/~USERNAME"; automatically redirects to
.    panix.com/~USERNAME.  You can get around this by appending a / to the URL:
.    
.               http://www.panix.net/~USERNAME/
.    
.    * Addresses of the form xxxx@USERNAME.users.panix.net are working now.
.    
.    Of course, we're still working around the clock to solve the underlying
.    problem with the hijacked domain.

Also 'dig +trace panix.com. ns':
