[MSNBC] Key Internet operator VeriSign hit by hackers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Quote:
VeriSign's domain-name system processes as many as 50 billion queries daily. Pilfered information from it could let hackers direct people to faked sites and intercept email from federal employees or corporate executives, though classified government data moves through more secure channels.

Dear hackers,

Stop screwing with my internets.

Love,
Joephis19

EDIT: After re-reading the article, I'm far more concerned that this was not disclosed until now than I am that it happened in the first place.

I"m guessing because no personal or PCI information was stolen the disclosure laws are different than say if hackers stole 1 million customer records. Still a long time to go unreported

Perhaps, I'm not all that familiar with the law. But a company with the clout and influence that VeriSign has over the Internet, you would think something of this nature would be reported/disclosed immediately. This isn't some toddling company that isn't very important in the grand scheme of things, anytime a company like this is breached it should be considered a major deal. Craziness...
