ORDB Gone bad?

I received an email this morning from a collegue giving me a heads up on ORDB queries returning everything as an open relay.

According to the WHOIS information the domain has been registered since june 2001, and was last updated january of 2007, and the domain expires (currently) in June of 2016.

I'm wondering if 1 the DNS information was changed to get people to stop using their site, or if it had been hacked by the spammers to stop people from trusting Open relay type services.

So if you're having problemssending or receiving mail, as always check your configs and in this case please remove from your list of open relay databases, as they ceased operating in December of 2006.
