Panix Panic

Panix, perhaps New York City's oldest Internet service provider (meaning that I don't think any other company was selling dialup Internet access in NYC in 1991) was largely knocked offline this weekend by a domain-name hijacking. The hijacking meant that mail to addresses was being redirected to the hijacker's servers, which seem to have bounced them at first, and then stopped accepting mail altogether.

While several of my domains are hosted at Panix, they were not affected by this, so my email was not affected.

Update: Today's New York Times had a good story about this incident.
