    Take a look at this explanation of subdomain hijaking via DNS cPanels.
    isc.sans * edu/diary/What+s+In+A+Name+/11770 (replace * with . and remove spaces since I don't have the ability to include URLS yet.)

    It seems that this is an easy way to get massive PR super fast. But, how hard is it to cover your tracks?
    And what brute force tools would you need to access a dns host?

    How would you take advantage of this totally BH method?

    I would just ride on an offline SEO client of mine if I thought it wouldn't be traced back to me and make me lose the client? In fact, I would be able to get a double ROI because anything I do for them also boosts my riding subdomain, and anything I do for myself will help my client see SERp results. :p

    Using other people's domains like that without their consent is illegal.
    Brute force password breaking on DNS providers is illegal.

    That information being posted here in-and-of-itself isn't wrong, its a good thing for people to know so they can focus on how to NOT be hacked. But discussing how to abuse this system is a sure-fire way to have this thread deleted.

    Thank you.
    I didn't intend on tossing any illegal methods forward.
    It just came to light today (if you saw the link). I had never heard of it, but not surprised that people are using it.

    I was primarily interested in understanding how others see this methods, or wondering if any others had been in this realm before.

    I don't deal with this either, and was just getting my creative juices flowing in a what if scenario. I do this with all new info that comes my way.

    To Mods: if it looks like this is pushing something illegal please close the thread down before it gets to heated. Thx
