Submission + - Spoofed Order Via Fax Leads to Metasploit DNS Hijack (threatpost.com)

msm1267 writes: Metasploit's HD Moore says hackers sent a spoofed DNS change request via fax to Register.com that the registrar accepted leading to a DNS hijacking attack against the Metasploit and Rapid7 websites.
The two respective homepages were defaced with a message left by the same hacker collective that claimed responsibility for a similar DNS attack against Network Solutions.
Rapid7 said the two sites' DNS records have been locked down and they are investigating.
