Verisign gets slapped.
Today The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers posted an advisory:
ICANN has today insisted that VeriSign suspend the SiteFinder service, and restore the .com and .net top-level domains to the way they were operated prior to 15 September 2003. If VeriSign does not comply with this demand by 6:00 PM PDT on 4 October 2003, ICANN will be forced to take the steps necessary to enforce VeriSign's contractual obligations.
The Register is reporting that it's already been done but, as of right now, that's not true.
