I see "Website under construction" and I am making the assumption
that this is a valid (non-phishing) website that has had its higher-level
domain parts hijacked. I am wondering if this is an easy thing to do.

For example, my own domain name is praxis.com.au. Is it easy for someone
to use westpac-security.login.validation.praxis.com.au as a valid
domain and get that into the DNS somehow? I would imagine that would
require some (illegal) hacking of zone files.
