The official domains of ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers, and IANA, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
were hijacked earlier today, by the NetDevilz Turkish hacking group
which also hijacked Photobucket's domain on the 18th of June.


Then, how did they do it? There is no comment on how it was done and ZDNet 
blog says that attackers refused to answer zone-h's questions.

Any suggestions? I think that there is no new way of hijacking domain names. 
There should be something like social engineering and unfortunately, there is 
no patch for human stupidity.
