I hate to say this, But I think that Network Operators have not see the 
last of of this DNS Hijacking. Craigslist might have been a test to see 
how far they could get and how long it would take for it to be 
discovered.   I hope the FBI and the other Federal agencies out there 
are involved with Craigslist to determine how this happened and put in 
safeguards in place to help prevent this from happening again.
