Lesson to Domain Owners (RE: IndianaJones.com)

Wired has a followup article on the IndianaJones.com hijacking saga. That particular domain is not mentioned, but it was one of this group. Personally, I was sweating it a little, thinking that someone could take my domain away. In this article, some of my fears are put to rest. Network Solutions mentions that these domains were using the the lowest level of security, which happens to be email authentication. If you own a domain and use email authentication, it is vulnerable to this kind of hijacking. For your security, you should assign a password to your domain entry. Don't forget it, though. I hear its a bear to make changes if your password is lost.
