Interview With ICANN's Chief Security Officer About TAS Glitch
Although ICANN has repeatedly committed itself to provide additional information regarding the TAS glitch and to give an update on the Reveal Day (April 30, 2012) the information provided until now is sparse. ICANN has published an interview with Jeff Moss, ICANN's Vice President and Chief Security Officer but without significant new information. Moss was brought in to look at the TAS glitch and to determine if the system was hacked.
The interview confirms what has been communicated by ICANN already: Some users were able to view other applicants usernames and filenames. ICANN does not reveal how often this glitch happened and how many saw the glitch. According to Moss it was a minority only. Interestingly Moss stated that ICANN is able to determine which applicant saw which file and usernames.
"We are able to reconstruct which file and usernames were displayed."
ICANN hasn't given a specific TAS re-opening and closing date or an update on the Reveal Day but ICANN's self-imposed deadline of Friday, 20 April, 23.59 UTC and has not yet elapsed.
