*TAS Interruption - Update (17 April 2012)*

Statement by Akram Atallah, COO

17 April 2012

ICANN's review of the technical glitch that resulted in the TLD 
application system being taken offline indicates that the issue stems 
from a problem in the way the system handled interrupted deletions of 
file attachments. This resulted in some applicants being able to see 
some other applicants' file names and user names.

As reported yesterday, we are seeking confirmation that the solution we 
have implemented for this issue is effective.

We are also conducting research to determine which applicants' file 
names and user names were potentially viewable, as well as which 
applicants had the ability to see them.

Many organizations are seeking information on whether we will proceed 
with the planned publication of applied-for domain names on 30 April. We 
will update the target date for publication as part of our update on the 
timing of the reopening, no later than /Friday, 20 April at 23.59 UTC/.
