New-York ISP victim of domain name hijacking!

A New York ISP said Sunday it was working to recover its domain name and e-mail services after suffering an apparent hijacking. A panix.com representative said ownership of the domain had been moved sometime Friday evening to a company in Australia, the domain name server records had been moved to the United Kingdom, and that the company's mail had been redirected to a company in Canada.
