[ga] Interesting news tidbit

>From this morning's BNA Internet Law News:

Key personal data belonging to hundreds of individuals have been shared
in an Internet chat room, in what one expert says could become one of
the largest identity theft cases ever.  An anonymous source provided
MSNBC.com with a two-hour segment of log files from the chat containing
information from about 50 people. <http://www.msnbc.com/news/604496.asp>

Further reading of the article shows that many of the stolen credit
cards were used at Network Solutions, presumably to buy up domains...I
wonder what domains were registered and/or if whois info from those
domains would point to 'cybersquatters' (whatever the PC term for them
is today). Seems to be a tad more well-organized and targeted than your
usual identity theft since random merchandise wasn't bought, but

Can any of the card holders claim ownership of the domains registered
under their CC if they wished to do so? What will happen to these
domains after chargebacks from legitimate card holders?
