The ICANN and IANA websites were defaced earlier today by a Turkish group called “NetDevilz”. ICANN is responsible for the global coordination of the Internet’s system of unique identifiers. These include domain names, as well as the addresses used in a variety of Internet protocols. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is responsible for the global coordination of the DNS Root, IP addressing, and other Internet protocol resources.
Their domains were redirecting to a hosting space at “atspace.com” where the defacers left the following message:
“You think that you control the domains but you don’t! Everybody knows wrong. We control the domains including ICANN! Don’t you believe us?”

We are not talking about aerial drones, here we are talking about ground soldier-drones, the real stuff we were all waiting for. Well, sort of.
The news is about the decision of the US Military to deploy eighteen more of the same combat drones who were already deployed, experimentally, on the Iraqi territory. Three units, to be precise. Are those artificial soldiers anything new? Not really.
As promised, we are back online!
