Wireless Modem Domain Gets Hacked

December 31, 1999 in News

When Metricom’s Ricochet.net was hacked recently, ‘e-vandals’ didn’t bother with the servers, instead going after the DNS (Domain Name System) housed by Network Solutions. Hackers redirected Metricom’s web traffic from ricochet.com to pornographic sites and caused emails sent by users of their wireless modems to bounce. The website and email was restored and fully functional within two days.
