Subject: BLOCK: verisign hijack *.net !
more precisely, they've hijacked every single non-assigned .net
possibility. Apparently .com is to follow soon.
Any domain not assigned is now active and has A records pointing to a
website run by Verisign:
$ host highlyunlikelyjhjgjhgjhgjhgjhgjg.net
highlyunlikelyjhjgjhgjhgjhgjhgjg.net has address 18.104.22.168
$ whois highlyunlikelyjhjgjhgjhgjhgjhgjg.net
Whois Server Version 1.3
Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.
No match for "HIGHLYUNLIKELYJHJGJHGJHGJHGJHGJG.NET".
The IP address is a verisgn redirect to a search engine. According to
posters to the DNSO list, Verisign are getting clickthrough fees.
