ICANN Plans To Notify All Applicants Over TLD System Data Breaches [reuters.com]
Organizations taking part in the most ambitious expansion of the Internet so far will find out next week whether their applications for new domain names could have been viewed by competitors as a result of a software bug.

"We're very apologetic for the inconvenience to any applicants," ICANN chief executive Rod Beckstrom told Reuters.

"Clearly, we're going to take every step that we can to make sure that no one takes advantage of any information they may have obtained," he said in a telephone interview, declining to detail exactly what steps could be taken.
