1. The Epik Hack – The top five stories on Domain Name Wire in September were related to the hack of domain name registrar Epik, so I’m going to combine these into one.

Rob Monster responded with a three-hour video call during which a guy with a Swastika tattoo showed up, and Monster took down a site that doxxed one of the callers.
