writes “Netcraft seems to have a little ditty about new rules from
ICANN that take effect on Friday making it easier to hijack domain
names. Essentially, if someone tries to take your domain, and you don't
answer within 5 days, they now assume you are okay with the transfer.
Previously, the default answer was no, and you had to explicitly state
your acceptance of the domain transfer. Owners of small domains,
beware: no more computerless vacations that last more than 4 days at a
time!” [Privacy Digest]
