51822293 story Want To Hijack a Domain? Just Get a Fax Machine 162 Posted by Soulskill on Friday October 11, 2013 @12:01PM from the why-are-fax-machines-still-a-thing dept. msm1267 writes "Metasploit's HD Moore says hackers sent a spoofed DNS change request via fax to Register.com that the registrar accepted, leading to a DNS hijacking attack against the Metasploit and Rapid7 websites. The two respective homepages were defaced with a message left by the same hacker collective that claimed responsibility for a similar DNS attack against Network Solutions. Rapid7 said the two sites' DNS records have been locked down and they are investigating."
