DNForum, the largest internet forum about domain names, has been hacked.
The hack job appears to be the work of the same group or individual that hacked SnapNames in January 2006. If you typed DNForum.com into your browser earlier this morning you saw a screen with an Iranian flag and a reference to DNJournal2005@yahoo.com (see screenshot below). The SnapNames hack incident had a similar screen including the same e-mail address.
Hack attempts are unfortunately nothing new in this industry. Last year a number of domain parking companies were subject to denial of service attacks, possibly launched by a competitor.
DNForum owner Adam Dicker is currently in Florida attending the TRAFFIC conference.
