Source: The Register

The Register breaks the news that the domain Mycheckfree.com, an online bill payment service, was hijacked and redirected to a phishing site on Tuesday, 2nd December. Brian Krebs at Security Fix has a deeper analysis which suggests that the phishers had the correct credentials to authorise the DNS change at Network Solutions, the registrar through which the domain name is published.
