What happens when the official domain names of the organizations that issue the domain names in general, and provide allthe practical guidance on how the prevent DNS hijacking, end up having their own domain names hijacked? A wake up call for the Internet community.

The official domains of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, and IANA, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority were hijacked earlier today, by the NetDevilz Turkish hacking group which also hijacked Photobucket’s domain on the 18th of June. Zone-H mirrored the defacements, some of which still remain active for the time being.
