ISP suffers apparent domain hijacking. A New York Internet service provider said Sunday it was working to recover its domain name and e-mail services after suffering an apparent hijacking."Panix.com" had ownership of its domain moved on Friday evening to a compnay in Australia, its domain name serve record moved to the United Kingdom, and the company's mail redirected to a third company in Canada. Panix serves New York City, Long Island, Westchester, Rockland County and New Jersey. "The company warned that most customers will either have no access to the Panix.com domain or will arrive at a false site. E-mail to the domain is being directed to the false site and "should be considered lost or compromised," the ISP said in its posting."
