dns my i
Haircom don't even know what hit them. When we were dealing with them (past five years) the DNS servers would used to sit down regular every 7-8 weeks or so because they cached-up - couldn't see in or out through the node unless using IP addys. Ridiculous, I know, but you could set your watch by the brownouts.
Heard their servers are kept in a block god-knows-where, down the back, climb the ladder, move the teachests, swipe the cobwebs, hit with a hammer. That's if you can get a gentleman on a penny farthing to go down there and he has the keys.
Typically takes 24-36 hours to flush/reload to fetch DNS again. Suffice to say, it's superfluous to hack Haircom as they'll balls it up themselves without trying and won't even know they have a problem. You don't need a hacker to redirect you to a pr0n page.
This sounds like one of those head_scratching moments of Haircom wonderment and awe rather than the first strike in a Sino-Russo-nKoreo attack on Fortress Dublin.

Ask google how many people have died in Burt Rutan designed craft ('rutan accidents' = 46 dead in one type of Rutan aircraft alone - the VariEze.)
Remember, they won the xprize after only two non-fatal flights. However subsequent testing resulted in the deaths of 3 ground crew after a fuel explosion. The list of fallen grows and grows.
Personally, I'm in no rush to hop aboard SpaceCrash Two with Virgin IntheAtlantic for a ten-second sub-orbital spin which I have a less than 50-50 chance of surviving.
If Rutan was a drug, he'd be withdrawn from the market.
