According to multiple news publications, including Gizmodo, Domain Name Wire, Jerusalem Post, and others, there has reportedly been some sort of security breach / hacking at Epik. There is also a lengthy discussion about the incident at NamePros. In that thread, NamePros CTO (Paul) shared some insight about the allegation and offered some general advice about keeping domain registrar accounts as secure as possible.
I received an email this afternoon signed by Epik CEO Rob Monster regarding “an alleged security incident involving Epik.” Although the incident was not confirmed by Epik in the email, there wasn’t a denial either.
The email is below for those who are interested in reading what was sent:
