Has Microsoft.com been hacked?

April 11th, 2007 by Zack Whittaker

This has me really confused – I was checking my WHOIS for my domain names to see when I need to renew them, and thought I’d check out Microsoft’s WHOIS as a simple query. After going to a number of different websites to verify this, I saw this on the WHOIS search. If anyone has any idea how this could have happened, let us know.

Please note: some strong language in places. If anyone has a low disposition, please don’t read some of the things below.

Edit: Wendy, in your lame attempt to explain this one to me (bless), it seems that Google and a lot of the other big websites out there have the sam problem. It’s not down to the individual websites, it’s something to do with the WHOIS search itself. I think…

    I believe this doesn’t show anything… anybody can register a subdomain in their domain…

    The hack would be if you would see:
    somethingbad.com.microsoft.com, not microsoft.com.somethingbad.com 🙂

    This is so lame. Those are subdomains of domains that do not belong to Microsoft in the first place. Anybody could create a sub-domain such as microsoft-sucks.mydomain.com.

    Go learn about domains/DNS before submitting this rubbish!

    Geez, stotty. What’s up with the attitude? Talk about being lame…

    Microsoft was not “hacked” (or cracked for that matter).

    “Injecting” false records in WHOIS databases isn’t anything new… This sort of thing has been happening for years. Anyone have any more information on this phenomenon?

    Also, what WHOIS server were you using?

    tyl0r@laptop:~$ whois aol.com
