ICANN TAS Update: 105 Applicants May Had File & User Names Viewed By Other Applicants
ICANN just issued another update on the TAS system and gave out some numbers this time.
“”At the time we took the system offline, there were 1268 registered users and some 95,000 file attachments in the system.”
“Of these, there were approximately 455 instances where a file name and the associated user name might have been viewed by another applicant.”
“We are continuing to review system logs and packet-level traffic to confirm how many viewings actually did occur.”
“Our review has determined that approximately:
- 105 applicants might have had file names and user names viewed by another applicant.
- 50 applicants might have viewed file names and user names from one or more other applicants.”
“ICANN is in the process of notifying applicants whether they were affected by the software glitch that caused us to take the TLD Application System, or TAS, offline. As we announced earlier this week, we plan to complete this notification process on or before 8 May.”
