What's puzzling is  the "How the heck did they do that?"

The registrar doesn't maintain the .COM database that contains the

they had to submit changes to all those records.

So, why weren't there security controls to make sure that the
registrar could not submit changes without appropriate authorization
from the Administrative/Tech contact?
