    "...an Internet registration company it oversees got fooled into transferring the domain names to someone else.

    The attack was quickly noticed, and ICANN's domain names were restored within 20 minutes."

    Correct me if I am wrong but does that require a "real" person to flip the switch to change these things?

    Then it look like a Human error!
    Not really an attack but plan ol dumb mistake.
