Popular programming language Perl's domain Perl.com stolen

The domain registration belonging to Perl.com, the popular source of news and information about the Perl programming language, has reportedly been stolen.

Brian Foy, a Perl expert who has written several books on the subject, revealed on January 27 that the domain has been taken over by an unknown actor.

He wrote on Reddit: “We’re still trying to unravel this and I can’t get into details. However, it looks like there was an account hack.

“I don’t know how long that would take to rewind.”

Foy added: “The perl.org and perl.com domains are unrelated and have different rightful registrants, so this doesn’t affect perl.org.”
