Don't Be an Unwitting Collaborator

You can go on for some time before discovering that your domain has been hijacked. So do the following:

  • Secure your DNS servers by using up-to-date software, limiting zone transfers to authorized hosts, being vigilant in looking for events that could show a problem, and deploy DNSSEC as soon as it's feasible for your organization to do so.

  • Secure your domain names by using SSL and strong passwords with your registrar, using a dedicated email address, using PGP or other encryption for email contents, and having a change control process so that unauthorized changes can be detected.

  • Finally, regularly check your domains using WHOIS or tools like the ones available at Network-Tools.com to verify that your information is valid both from inside and outside your domain.
