Web Sited Pirated
ARRL Information Services Department Manager Don Durand said the League's ''arrl.org'' domain name was illegally modified at Network Solutions--which registers domain names--and redirected to the bogus site. Network Solutions was promptly notified yesterday and has restored the League's record.
Durand said it takes up to 48 hours for the various name servers on the Internet to update their records.
The ARRL Web site itself
was not ''hacked,'' and no ARRL files were damaged as a result of the
vandalism, Durand emphasized.
ARRL President Jim Haynie,
W5JBP, said the League intends to investigate the disruption through all
possible means and will prosecute if the perpetrator is caught.
