3. Mailchimp increases price 15%-20% for longtime customers – Just months after grandfathering existing customers into an earlier pricing model, the popular email marketing platform is raising prices on these customers.
4. This could be a bad phishing campaign for stealing domains – This clever single sign-on phishing approach could be used to steal domains.
5. Auto parts company’s domain stolen and held for ransom – A thief demanded 10 bitcoin for the return of the domain name, but the auto parts company got a court to return the domain quickly.
