ICANN Blames Melbourne IT for Panix Domain Hijacking


Panix had its domain hijacked over the weekend of January
15-16. Its domain was registered with Dotster, a registrar based
in Washington. By January 17, the domain had been restored.

Melbourne IT has admitted that it was to blame for the incident
as one of its resellers failed to follow the process for seeking
authorisation for a domain name transfer request.

I used lynx to avoid registration hassles.


obdisclaimer: Happy Panix customer...
