Privacy breach discovered in Internet address bids
Access to Internet address proposals suspended briefly after privacy breach discovered
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The organization in charge of introducing new Internet addresses to rival ".com" says it briefly suspended access to some documents on its website after it discovered a privacy breach.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers says it had mistakenly published postal addresses of individuals making bids for the names ' contact information that was meant to be private. The disclosure was limited to cities and countries in some cases, while full street addresses appeared in others.

The discovery came late Thursday, a day after ICANN revealed nearly 2,000 proposals for new Internet suffixes and posted details on its website.



ICANN restored access to those documents after removing the contact information. It's not clear how long that took. ICANN did not immediately respond to requests for more information.
