InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) and the New Zealand Internet Task Force (NZITF) are today warning website owners that their site’s security may have been breached and private information, including logons and passwords, may have been stolen after the HeartBleed vulnerability was identified in the last 24 hours.
The DNS transition
In March 2014, the United States Government announced it wanted to end its responsibilities for the Internet's Domain Name System, and hand these over to the global Internet community. This was a topic of considerable discussion at the ICANN meeting in Singapore at the end of March. InternetNZ has been contributing to the debate - find more details here.
A better world through a better Internet
InternetNZ was set up, years ago, to keep the Internet open and uncaptureable. Since then the Internet has become ubiquitous, and most people use it most days. That means InternetNZ needs to be interested in more than just the technology side of the Internet – how people can make use of it matters more than ever. To that end we’re updating our vision and mission. Our vision is now: a better world through a better Internet, and our mission is to promote the Internet's benefits and uses and protect its potential.
