Google.de Snatched by Cyber-Squatters
On Tuesday of this week Google’s .de domain name was temporarily hijacked. A transfer for the domain name was requested, and through Denic’s automated transfer service, the request was completed without anyone realising what had happened until… too late! Der Spiegel reports that “In Germany, if the old domain name provider does not reject the transfer request, the transfer is automatically carried out after a few days — even if the owner did not ask for it.” Previously ebay.de suffered a similar fate.
