Statement on TLD Application System

12 April 2012

We have learned of a possible glitch in the TLD application system software that has allowed a limited number of users to view some other users' file names and user names in certain scenarios.

Out of an abundance of caution, we took the system offline to protect applicant data. We are examining how this issue occurred and considering appropriate steps forward.

We apologize for any concern this may have caused and will communicate on a regular basis on our website, which can be found at: http://newgtlds.icann.org
