    "ICANN seeks to assure people that it is on top of the situation"

    That employee is really dumb. he had not even checked domain name of landing page before login. Never expected this from employee of a org that manages whole internet.

    Rather pathetic when you think about it, but then again the users are the biggest weakness in many companies IT infrastructure.

    But yeah, didn't see that coming from on organisation such as ICANN.
