So what part of VRSN got broken into? They do a lot more than just DNS.
Indeed, VeriSign owns Illuminet, who are mission-critical for POTS.
Illuminet is also in the business of recording telephone calls, SMS
messages, etc. for law enforcement.
That means that a "breach" at "VeriSign" could be nothing, or it could
give bad guys access to a lot more than any breach or leak reported to
date. Who knows?
