My websites recently got hit by an extremely vicious attack which has forced me to take down, and re-build the websites that I own, as well as probably change hosting providers causing me considerable trouble and expense.
Here's the rub. I know who did it. The attack left a trace and a web address, and I know who the registrar for that web address is. Now, the regsitrar, and the web host are not the same, but I can't go after the hosting provider for recompence (they're Korean, and somehow, I doubt I'll get much joy, as my Korean isn't great), but I CAN go for the registrar of the domain name responsible.
Are they legally, in at leat some part, responsible for the attack on my site, as they are the registrar of the offending web address? Do they have a responsibility to make sure that Domains registered in their name are not used for illegal purposes?
