We went to check the availability of a domain on domainregistry.ie today and saw this.

They had a “security incident on Tuesday 9 October” and today their site is still not fully functioning.

That was the same day that google.ie and yahoo.ie were temporarily
unavailable.

It went largely unreported in mainstream Irish media.

The India Times were on the case though.

Potentially, any .ie website could have been re-directed.

Why was this so low key in Irish media? And what does this say about the security of our national interweb infrastructure?

Anyone?
