Information On July 11, 1997, against the advice of his Alternic colleagues, Kashpureff hijacked the InterNIC website, redirecting affected visitors to the AlterNIC website instead, where they could read about the AlterNIC protest or click a link to the InterNIC page.[5] Kashpureff stopped the hijacking three days later on July 14, but started again on July 18.[6] This led NSI, the operator of the InterNIC website, to file a lawsuit against Kashpureff. The civil lawsuit was quickly settled, but NSI had also contacted the FBI to investigate whether Kashpureff had broken federal computer crime laws.
