Global internet authority ICANN that allocates IP addresses and domain names for the internet has reportedly been hacked in late November.
Employees received emails from the organizations' own domain after it was hacked owing to which they gave up their credentials.
The hackers were able to breach a wide range of user information including real names, addresses, emails, telephones and usernames. They accessed internal emails, a members-only Wiki page containing public information, the WHOIS portal (used to look up who registered a particular domain), and the organization's Centralized Zone Data System (CZDS).
ICANN said, "The hackers also accessed the passwords of users. However, the passwords were encrypted."
