Hushmail hit by DNS attack

The register reports that Hushmail, my personal email provider and favorite secure webmail provider of the security paranoid the world over, was hit by a DNS attack on Sunday. Fortunately, the compromised DNS entry simply redirected hushmail users to a defaced page. No accounts or email were compromised. However, email directed to hushmail users during the period that the DNS compromise was in force, will have been lost.
