    Try http://www.neulevel.biz/index.htm and you get:
    Not Found

    The requested URL /index.htm was not found on this server.

    Apache/1.3.23 Server at www.neulevel.biz Port 80

    Basic web server security 101. If an HTTP request cannot find an index.html file (if, perhaps, it has become corrupted), it will look for an index.htm file. If it can't find that either it may serve up the contents of your root directory. Your root directory may well contain information you didn't want to be public. Depending on your configuration there are various hacks that would allow this information to not just be viewed, but also deleted or modified. NeuLevel's clue level leaves much to be desired. -g

    The permanent link to the icann.blog entry is here. I also submitted the link to the Newsbytes article to ICANNWatch as an update several hours ago but it has not appeared (this isn't a complaint). I just want to be clear that if I say something and it proves not to be true I will attempt to correct it.

    That said, parts of this story according to NeuLevel just don't wash with me for the reasons you have stated. For even rinky-dink non-commercial sites I run I receive immediate notification via email (which can be piped to a PDA or cellphone wherever I am) if a site's homepage goes offline or its content changes. This takes next to zero time or money to set up or maintain. That the domain that means business (or was that .bz?) :) apparently has no such safeguards in place does not inspire confidence. They also still don't have a root index.htm file in place, a security hole that has been known about for many years, so perhaps the next strange message and/or outage will come from outside. -g
