Long and technically detailed story of a big DNS blunder, with
unexpected consequences:


The author says "your domain name registrar can introduce an error to
the root domain database and match your domain to an incorrect DNS
servers (this actually happened earlier in history of some domain
registrars)" but my human memory cannot find an actual documented
case. Anyone can mention one or was it just speculation?

DNSSEC would have mitigated the problem if the domain had been
properly managed, which was apparently not the case.
