ICANN Takes TLD Application System Offline Due To 'Unusual Behavior' [icann.org]
ICANN constantly monitors the performance of the TLD Application System (TAS). Recently, we received a report of unusual behavior with the operation of the TAS system. We then identified a technical issue with the TAS system software.

In order to ensure all applicants have sufficient time to complete their applications during the disruption, the application window will remain open until 23:59 UTC on Friday, 20 April 2012.

From what I have heard, they didn't get hacked, their application system has a problem with > and < characters and they're trying to fix it.

One of the things that hackers do, is manipulations using < and > characters.
