Serbian ‘Hack Attack’ Is Really Just Email Spoof

While some report the number of domains hijacked in a Serbian ‘eTerrorist’ attack to be in the high 2000’s, Network Solutions says “No.” The company maintains that very few websites were affected, and that their servers were not hacked. The hijacking was an age-old email spoof job, which is completely avoidable by every registrant by stepping up the domain security features offered for free by Network Solutions. The lowest form of security allows registrants to change their info by simply emailing a request. By opting for more security, the account change would require more identification.
