The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will delay a final vote on whether to approve and activate the ".xxx" top-level domain after requests from the U.S. government and others to hold off on a decision, which was to come this week. The domain has already received preliminary approval from ICANN, with mainly technical issues dealing with the operation of the domain and contract details with operator ICM Registry of Florida to be worked out.

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
