Slashdot Reports NSI E-mail Security Alert
Author: Jason Kerr Posted: 9/16/1999; 12:22:33 PM Topic: Slashdot Reports NSI E-mail Security Alert Msg #: 11148 Prev/Next: 11147 / 11149
According to folks on Slashdot, NSI has created a free email system and signed up all domain owners. Without permission. And, to make matters worse, the username is the domain-id, and the password contains the username.
I don't know if this is true; I don't own a domain name, so I couldn't test it.
If it is true, it's a really bad foul-up.
