+ - ICANN lost its own domain registration

ICANN, said it happened on June 26 when an internet registration company it oversees got fooled into transferring the domain names to someone else. .... The domain names hijacked were ICANN.com and IANA.com

And it should be a reminder that domain redirection can happen to anyone, no matter high up the supposed registration tree they happen to be.
