One can never know what's going on behind the scenes. Maybe Verysign is on the issue, maybe not. I believe, there are at least three VS people on this list who could address this. I don't know whether they are allowed to. > It's been about 24 hours, it is well-known that the domain has been > hijacked, we've heard directly from the domain owner and operator, > but the TLD servers are still pointing to the hijacker.
