Re: [registrars] NSI hacked?

This has to do with the legacy system that
NSI uses at the retail level to provide security.
I would give the details but list posts are
public so why provide the information?
In any case it has nothing to do with flaws
in RRP or anything Registrars get involved in or
have to worry about.
