Statement by Akram Atallah, COO
ICANN has been providing regular updates on the recent technical glitch that resulted in the TLD application system being taken offline.
As reported earlier, we believe that we have fixed the glitch. We continue to test the solution and to conduct research to determine which file names and user names were potentially viewable, as well as which applicants had the ability to see them.
We will provide additional information tomorrow to address questions that we have received about the glitch. Please monitor the ICANN website at <http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/tas/interruption-updates> for further updates.
Thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this issue and reopen the application system.
