Rumoured to have been hacked by North Korean hackers, tired of waiting to be able to use full domain names in their own language. :lol:

So, ICANN staffers fell for the oldest trick on the internet? That tells you something about the organization.

Quote:

The attackers used "spear phishing" campaign to target sensitive systems operated by ICANN and sent spoofed emails disguised as internal ICANN communications to its staff members. The link in the emails took the staff to bogus login page, where they provided their usernames and passwords with the keys to their work email accounts.
