Which poses the question, are there others that have fallen foul of this algorithm?
It has always seemed to me that domain registrars are a weak link in our implementation of utilizing our own domains for email and our websites, etc. At least for those of us who don't have the scale to pay for concierge level service from the registrars. For example, I don't believe all registrars offer 2FA and those that do often utilize rather weak systems. You can use the best email in the world, with backups and all, but if your registrar takes your domain down everything grinds to a halt. If it can happen to Zoho it could easily happen to most of us, and chances are it would take a lot longer to resolve.

Introducing Cloudflare Registrar

https://blog.cloudflare.com/cloudflare-registrar/

Cloudflare has actually run a registrar for some time. Like many of our best products, it started by solving an internal issue we had. Cloudflare has several mission-critical domains. If the registration of these domains were ever compromised, it would be, in a word, bad.

For years, we worked with our original domain registrar to ensure these domains were as locked down as possible. Unfortunately, in 2013, a hacker was able to compromise several of the systems of the registrar we used and come perilously close to taking over some of our domains.

That began a process of us looking for a better registrar. Unfortunately, even the registrars that charge hefty premiums and promise to be very secure turn out to have pretty lousy security. We ultimately decided the only way to get the level of security we needed was to build a registrar ourselves.

You can't actually register a new domain with the Cloudflare Registrar. Not yet. Today, the service is restricted to existing Cloudflare customers transferring their existing domains to us.

Data exfiltration

Maybe this explains the Zoho incident. Looks like Yandex has a similar exfiltration issue if you scroll down a bit. https://threatpost.com/keyloggers-tu...ration/137868/
