A gmail security vulnerability (now fixed) allowed a domain extortionist to hijack logo designer David Airey’s domain. Fortunately he had a a .co.uk backup and is online. But he’s still fighting to get back his .com.

UPDATE: The flurry of news and support for David resulted in GoDaddy (his domain registrar) helping him nail things back down.
