Irish Google and Yahoo Hijacked

Yahoo and Googles Irish domain names were briefly hijacked on Tuesday. After the domain names servers were changed, San Francisco-based registrar MarkMonitor, quickly fixed the problem. It remains not certain why and how the hijacking took place but it is deeply embarrassing, even to the point where Google failed to announce it to their customers, “We are aware that some users are having difficulties accessing and we are working to fix the problem. We apologise to those users experiencing problems and appreciate their patience.” To read further on the issue click here.
