I thought these guys were tech savvy?
A couple weeks after WikiLeaks.org’s DNS services provider cut if off, someone within the organization finally figured out how to log into the registrar account and change the DNS.
Seriously, was this just a ploy to get more publicity? When EveryDNS cut of WikiLeaks, all the organization had to do was log in to its Dynadot account and change the nameservers to another DNS or hosting service. Instead the domain name sat there…not resolving.
Finally, it appears that someone logged into the DynaDot registrar account and changed the nameservers. They currently point to Dynadot’s own nameservers, which may be set up with URL forwarding. The organization has had access to the registrar account all along.
Visiting WikiLeaks.org right now forwards me to WikiLeaks.info. Perhaps these guys are slow learners. WikiLeaks.info is registered with Go Daddy, a domain name registrar located in the good ole’ U.S.A. But I guess another mirror site is just a URL forward away.
