Your guess is probably correct - and The Register reports about the same:

like it would work. You buy www.google.com.net and then you wait for
their DNS to mess up and you get thousands and thousands of hits to your
spyware site. Possible Passive Pharming attack?

Anyone know for sure what happen?

Engadget.com was claiming (incorrectly) that google got hacked http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:aAAhpPYRP5cJ:www.engadget
.com/entry/1234000610042620/+engadget+google+hacked&hl=en

Didn't take long for baseless speculation!

Well, the patch the mozilla server was modified to fix the

told everyone the whole story about it on here yesterday. I heard about this on the weekend.

I am surprised no one has talked about the Google DNS issue. Users were tricked into going to SoGoSearch.com because of IE's

great domain
search function. When IE can't find a site, it starts to

search. Well,
SoGoSearch.com owns www.google.com.net, and therefore that is why people were getting spyware/adware junk.
