    Ebay Hijacker Caught
    I can't believe I missed this one. The kid that took over Ebay Germany's DNS was caught yesterday. You'd think he was a hardcore cracker, but it was surprisingly easy for him.

    The boy admitted he requested a DNS (domain name server) transfer for several high-profile sites, including Google.com, Web.de, Amazon.com and eBay Germany. While most of these transfers were denied, somehow eBay slipped through.
