GoDaddy Leaks WHOIS Privacy Registration Information

Article explains a security flaw in Godaddy's system which allows you to see a portion of the owner's e-mail address. In some cases this can be used to id the owner. It shows the e-mail address after the @ mark. Isn't a problem if the owner has a gmail, hotmail or Yahoo account but can reveal their identity if they are using an e-mail from another domain that isn't protected or the owner is known. For example, try it for a name like Moby.net and you can get the name of the registrant even though it is supposedly protected by privacy.

This could be used to see who has been naughty with trademarks and scam sites though it is a time consuming process. You can probably only get the id of the registrant 10% of the time. I bet it will not last more than 24 hours so if you have the time, check it out and see who owns some of those trademarks and sketchy porn names. For those who value their privacy, you might have been paying for a service that wasn't worth anything. A refund might be in order
