We’ve seen many domain names hijacked over the years, Google, Microsoft, and the insane story of sex.com (heck the Vice story about sex.com is just a teaser to an entire book about the issue), and last week we got an open source domain owned by the Perl Foundation stolen, BleepingComputer, Perl.com domain stolen, now using IP address tied to malware: “On the 28th, d foy tweeted that they have set up perl.com temporarily at http://perldotcom.perl.org for users who wish to access the site until the domain is recovered.”

This sucks because open source has enough battles to fight with limited resources. It’s also an important reminder to Lock Your Domain and enable two-factor authentication (2FA) wherever possible.
