All That Is Needed To Hijack Domain is a Fax
The domain registration information for Metasploit, AVG, Avira, and WhatsApp have all been hijacked in the past week using a spoofed DNS change request sent via fax machine. Both Register.com and Network Solutions have fell victim to this attack. The hostile cyber activist group KDMS has taken full responsibility for this attack. The hijacked companies are all stating that no internal systems or customer information was compromised.
Ensure you include your public facing web site DNS information into your IT monitoring software and plan. The impact of a domain hijack can be very high as customer and partner confidence is lost.
KDMS is also a small server in the Minecraft universe that is limitless. Do not confuse please.
