TAS Interruption - Update (19 April 2012)

Statement by Akram Atallah, COO

ICANN continues to test the solution that we have developed for the glitch in the new gTLD application system, or TAS.

We are also taking steps to improve system performance when the system reopens, and sifting through the data so that we can notify all applicants whether they have been affected.

Yesterday we promised to provide more information, and today we have prepared a video interview with Jeff Moss, ICANN's Vice President and Chief Security Officer, answering questions about the glitch.

Thank you for your patience as we work to reopen the application system.
