Actually, can anybody find a web site privacy policy for icann.org? Maybe I’m blind, but I can’t find it…


“14 April 2012

Statement by Akram Atallah, COO

As we have reported, ICANN has learned of a technical issue with the TLD application system software, or TAS, that allowed a limited number of users to view some other users’ file names and user names in certain scenarios. We temporarily shut the system down on 12 April 2012 to protect applicant data, and to look into the technical issue and fix it.

As part of that process, we are sifting through the thousands of customer service inquiries received since the opening of the application submission period. This preliminary review has identified a user report on 19 March that appears to be the first report related to this technical issue.

Although we believed the issues identified in the initial and subsequent reports had been addressed, on 12 April we confirmed that there was a continuing unresolved issue and we shut down the system.

We are still aggressively looking into the issue, and we will publish additional information as soon as it can be confirmed.

We recognize the importance of reopening the application system as soon as possible. We will announce no later than 23:59 GMT/UTC on Monday, 16 April, whether we will be able to reopen on Tuesday, 17 April 2012.

Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.”

Just saying…   The only way to get rid of the darned thing is to fire up Task Manager and shut down the HPWUCli.exe process (sigh)
