This has been happening to a number of space-related sites; for
instance, an amateur astronomy site based in Florida a couple of
months earlier this summer. It's a new form of attack which exploits
a vulnerability in how Microsoft o/s (naturally it's them!) handles
domain name tables.

It's almost certainly the same perp, because the motive was the same
with this other site: selling souvenirs.

I'll post some more info when I get it.
