ICANN — or the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, for the six of you who were wondering — released their new list of top-level domain names today.
So this is how it goes, instead of buying your next Fifty Shades of Greyapproved anal accessory from http://www.succulantsuppositories.com you can now just head on over to http://www.succulantsupporitories.adult!!
Big corporations like Amazon and American Express shelled out $185k per domain extension for .amazon and .americanexpress because it makes their sites exponentially more secure.
It’s all binary mumbojumbo to us but — apparently — when you control the interwebs from that high of a level, your website becomes absolutely impenetrable to hacking, phishing, and even spam!
Do you rember back to 2011 when Selena Gomez’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were taken over by a hacker, who wrote things like “Justin Bieber sucks”…???
Well now the hacker Gareth Crosskey, who posted a video on the internet showing how he hacked the facebook account has been caught after the FBI and Britain’s Metropolitan Police tracked him down!
After spending $79,130 on the investigation, Gareth admitted to the computer crime earlier this month and has been sentenced to one year in prison!
Judge John Price, who sentenced Gareth, told him:
“You are clever with a computer and you hacked into the private part of somebody’s Facebook account. Selena Gomez had a Facebook account on which she has six million friends. They have permission to get into part of the account and you hacked into a private part by getting the email password.”
Gareth had claimed to have gotten his hands on some personal exchanges between Selena and the Biebs, and also between her andDemi Lovato!
We are so happy they they have caught this man and he if doing time for something wrong he has done.
