Dear Internet Architecture Board,
According to draft-iab-rfc-editor-model-v2-05, the Internet Architecture Board
maintains its chartered responsibility for the RFC Editor as defined
in RFC 2850. I hope that it is the appropriate party to enquire
about this RFC Editor matter.
The RFC Server Outage Report posted at
mentions that the "the RFC Editor server was attacked
and compromised" and that "the website was returning invalid search
results for searches against the RFC Editor database". From the
report I gather that any information served by www.rfc-editor.org
over HTTP or HTTPS should be considered as invalid during the period
mentioned in the report.
The report does not mention whether information served by
ftp.rfc-editor.org during that period should be considered as
valid. It is not clear from the report whether "the RFC Editor
server" refers to both www.rfc-editor.org and ftp.editor.org. Can
that be clarified?
